Professional profile

Dr Taran Tatla received First Class Honours (Intercalated) in Anatomy (1994) and gained MBBS at University College London (1996). In postgraduate years, he made rapid progress through highly competitive and comprehensive basic and higher surgical training programmes, incorporating posts at many of the renowned London teaching hospitals (FRCS (Eng) awarded in 2006). In 2008 he commenced his substantial NHS consultant post at London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust, specialising in ENT disorders with Head and Neck (H&N) sub-interest. 

He manages a wide variety of adult and paediatric patients. Working in one of the busiest and largest ENT-H&N service providers in London, he contributes as a core member to the Thyroid and H&N Cancer multi-disciplinary teams, providing secondary and tertiary care specialist services.

He leads multi-disciplinary teams in investigating and treating patients with both benign and cancer conditions, as well as leading locally in the evidence-based management of tracheostomy patients. He manages patients with neck lumps, voice, throat, swallow, thyroid and parathyroid disorders, as well as sinonasal, snoring and airway conditions. He has a particular interest in minimally invasive (endoscopic) methods for disease management. 

He pursues a number of leadership and academic (teaching / research) roles in order to provide high-quality and safe clinical care for his patients. He runs a number of innovative and celebrated national postgraduate training courses for both surgeons and multi-disciplinary staff on the back of his clinical practice. He is Training Programme Director for higher surgical training in Otolaryngology (HEE NW London).

Dr Tatla is ENT Specialty Clinical Research Lead for the NIHR NW London Comprehensive Research Network and National ENT research group Industry Champion. He spear-heads a number of pioneering, multi-disciplinary, collaborative research projects focused on targeted community ENT healthcare screening across the age spectrum; paediatric, through adult to elderly patient care. He leads an exciting, multi-centre, collaborative research project based in North West London, developing and piloting a novel point of care 'optical biopsy' tool to facilitate early and accurate disease diagnosis. This has formed the basis of his PhD award at Imperial College London (2018), working with the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery.
