Virtual consultations:

I specialise in paediatric ENT/sinus surgery and patients suffering from dizziness.

My practice is based on a philosophy of making decisions in partnership with patients. I provide up to date medical information in an easily understandable form, to allow patients and their families to make the best treatment decisions. I give priority to explaining things clearly, and allow plenty of time to answer questions and discuss concerns.

I am a busy consultant based in both The West Herts and The Luton and Dunstable NHS Trusts.

I trained at St Andrews University and Manchester University and my registrar training was at Guy's Hospital, London. I was a Senior Fellow in Otolaryngology in Seattle, USA.

Please note that Mr Johnston will only see paediatric patients under the age of 16 who are insured.

He is happy to see all patients over the age of 16 who are insured or self-funding.
