Personal profile

Miss Sneddon completed her basic surgical training in London at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh, both in clinical surgery in general, and in ENT surgery. Subsequently she was awarded her national training number in Oxford. She continued focussed ENT and head & neck training within the Oxford region. During the training, Miss Sneddon was involved in the complex care of head and neck cancer patients, those with paediatric airway difficulites as well as a full range of ENT, head & neck and thyroid management.

Miss Sneddon spent a year in Sydney at the Sydney Head and Neck Cancer Institute as a Surgical Fellow. This fellowship allowed the development of independent practice, and Miss Sneddon worked alongside Professor Chris O’Brien, a world leader in the field of thyroid and head & neck surgery. Miss Sneddon was actively involved in research and audit during the year and presented at the Australian and New Zealand Head and Neck Society in Wellington, New Zealand.

Miss Sneddon is a consultant at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, based at the Queen’s Medical Centre campus. She is also Honorary Lecturer for the University of Nottingham. Miss Sneddon has a keen interest in medical education, having graduated from the Doctors as Educators course at the Royal College of Physicians in London.
