Don McFerran has worked as an ENT surgeon since the mid 1980’s and has been a Consultant in Colchester, Essex since 1999. He did his basic medical training at Queens’ College Cambridge and Cambridge University Medical School. His postgraduate training took him through several ENT departments in London and East Anglia, including the Middlesex Hospital where he worked under Jonathan Hazell at the time that the Neurophysiological Model of Tinnitus and Tinnitus Retraining Therapy were being developed. Although, like many district general hospital consultants, he has a fairly varied and generalised ENT practice he has a special interest in adult otology, particularly tinnitus and runs a regular tinnitus clinic. He has published widely on a diverse range of ENT topics including paediatric tinnitus and has co-authored two tinnitus books – one for professionals and one self help book for people with tinnitus and hyperacusis.

Married with two sons who are at the university stage, in what little spare time he gets, he enjoys cookery and woodwork. He is also a keen hill walker though his current domicile in East Anglia does limit the opportunities for this pursuit!
