Mr Max McCormick

Consultant ENT Surgeon


Specialises in

I trained at Liverpool University Medical School. My training in ENT commenced in Liverpool and took me to Oxford and Cape Town and subsequently back to Liverpool as a Consultant where I have been in post since 1986. I am now the senior practising clinician on Merseyside. My clinical interests are general aspects on ENT but sub-speciality interests in otology, voice and paediatrics. I receive tertiary referrals in my sub-speciality interests. I also act as an expert witness in legal cases and have done so for the past twenty five years acting for both the plaintiff and claimant. I also assist in medical defence union where appropriate.

Ear, nose and throat, particularly otology and voice
