Mr Shaun Jackson

Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon


Mr Shaun Jackson studied at Liverpool University during which time he won the Clinical Surgery Prize.  After qualifying he worked as House Officer and ENT SHO at the Royal Liverpool Hospital before he undertook General and Plastic Surgery training in Scotland.

Having decided to pursue a special interest in ENT/Head and Neck, Mr Jackson obtained training posts as Registrar and Senior Registrar within the Mersey Region.  During this training he was seconded for 8 months to the University Hospital Zurich to cover as their Head and Neck surgeon.  He trained the Swiss surgeons in Head and Neck surgery as well as teaching some General ENT surgery.

On return to England Mr Jackson was appointed to Whiston Hospital.  He developed the thyroid and parathyroid surgery service at Whiston Hospital having the third largest such practice in the Mersey Region.  He introduced Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) after being impressed by the surgery he had been involved in in Switzerland.

In 1998 Mr Jackson moved to the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and Alder Hey Childrens Hospital.  In 2001 Oncology Services in Mersey Region were rationalised and the service at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital moved to University Hospital Aintree where he joined his ENT colleagues in what is now the largest ENT unit in Merseyside, as well as being the Academic centre for ENT.  He continues to undertake the Head and Neck Oncology clinic at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and also a further oncology clinic at Arrowe Park Hospital for Wirral patients.  His general ENT clinic is based at University Hospital Aintree.

In 2002 Mr Jackson became Clinical Director for ENT, Aintree.  He resigned this position in 2012 in order to concentrate on the role of Training Programme Director for ENT, Mersey Region.  In this capacity he is in charge of education for all Mersey ENT trainees.

Mr Jackson has an interest in complex thyroid disease, both benign and malignant, as well as his general ENT/Head & Neck practice.

Mr Jackson has consulted at Fairfield Independent Hospital since 1992.  Although he no longer sees patients under the age of 16, as he relinquished his sessions at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, he maintains an adult General ENT practice at Fairfield.

Mr Jackson also offers Microsuction Clearance at Fairfield Independent Hospital. Microsuction clearance is a technique of cleaning the ear manually without the need for syringing. It is the safest and most effective method of removing ear wax.
