Patients requiring surgery for tumours of the head and neck will frequently require reconstructive surgery by one of our team, and we work closely with ENT and maxillofacial colleagues as well as speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and specialist nurses to provide a technologically advanced, comprehensive and caring service to our patients.

Five of our consultants have specialist paediatric plastic surgery training in their sub-specialty areas, and as a team we provide a comprehensive service that covers a large portion of the North and East of the region, from King’s Lynn, Ipswich, the James Paget University Hospital and a dedicated outreach clinic in Ipswich.
