The Central London Throat Nose and Ear Hospital was founded in 1874 by Lennox Browne, Llewellyn Thomas, Alfred Hutton, George Wallis and Ernest Turner. The hospital initially opened in Manchester Street (now Argyle Street), but demand for its services was such that in 1875 it moved to its current location on Gray's Inn Road. In January 1942 the hospital was amalgamated with the Hospital for Diseases of the Throat in Golden Square to form The Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital.
In April 1991 the Royal Free Hampstead NHS Trust, comprising the Royal Free Hospital and the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital, became one of the first NHS trusts established under the provisions of the NHS and Community Care Act 1990.
In April 2012, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust took over management of the hospital from the Royal Free Hampstead NHS Trust.
The Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital (the RNTNEH) is a specialist otolaryngologic hospital located on Gray's Inn Road in London, England, and a part of the University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Established in 1874, its motto is "Audient surdi mutique loquentur" (the deaf shall hear and the mute shall speak).
The hospital specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of ear, nose and throat disorders. Departments within the hospital include an allergy clinic, rhinology and audiology / otology, and it treats a range of disorders including cancers, hearing and speech disorders, snoring and related sleep disorders.
