Personal Profile
After qualifying from St Thomas’s Hospital Medical School in 1986, Pandora started her career in General Practice, gaining a Distinction in the Membership exam of The Royal College of General Practitioners and further qualifications in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Surgery. She so enjoyed ENT that she decided to specialise in it, subsequently obtaining the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

Her ENT specialist training took place in several London Teaching Hospitals including The Royal Marsden Hospital; Charing Cross Hospital; The Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital (Gray’s Inn Road); The Royal Brompton Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital. During this time she developed a special interest in Rhinology (medical and surgical treatment of the nose) and Paediatric ENT.

Pandora broadened her surgical experience during Travel Fellowships to Paediatric ENT and Rhinology centres both in the USA (Boston) and in France (Paris and Nancy). She spent several years at Great Ormond Street Hospital, and was appointed Clinical Fellow twice during her training (at the time the only Fellowship in the United Kingdom).

As an NHS ENT Consultant since 2003 at The Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, she continues with her special interest in Paediatric ENT. Pandora runs dedicated Children’s ENT clinics at both hospitals, in which she sees a wide variety of ENT-related problems in children.

In addition to publishing numerous scientific medical papers, most as first author, and undertaking clinical research, Pandora contributed the Paediatric ENT chapter to the textbook “Practical Paediatric Problems in Primary Care”.

Pandora was educated at Rugby School and Préalpina School, Montreux, Switzerland. She is married (to a surgeon) and has three children.
