Mr. Samuel Leong is a core member of the Liverpool Skull Base Team. He is a fellowship-trained surgeon who has spent an extended period of specialist training in Australia, Singapore, and New Zealand.

Sam is the lead consultant of the Liverpool Rhinology Fellowship programme which has been accredited by The Royal College of Surgeons of England to have met their strict criteria and high standards for expert training in rhinology. In addition to supporting rhinology training events in Liverpool, he is also on the teaching faculty of the annual Wessex Advanced Sinus Surgery Course and Singapore General Hospital FESS Course. He collaborates with both the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and University of Liverpool on research streams focusing on the effects of novel treatments on mucosal immunity in chronic rhinosinusitis.
