UCL Ear Institute


Catherine Pengelly

I joined the evidENT team as a Research Nurse in January 2021 and I work with the multi-disciplinary clinical and research teams on the Macro Trial, recruiting patients and providing them with relevant nursing care.

I completed a degree in English Literature at Manchester in 1990 and subsequently trained as a nurse at Barts. I have spent most of my nursing career in multi-specialty Pre-op Assessment Clinics at Central Middlesex and Northwick Park Hospitals, including ENT, and this has been interspersed with roles as the manager of a Surgical Scheduling office and Waiting Times Team. I also worked as an Orthopaedic Coordinator to improve their theatre utilisation. I joined UCLH in 2017 as a Urology Pre-assessment Nurse and became the Deputy Sister there. I am currently the Urology Outpatients Sister at Westmoreland St and am job sharing my role there in order to work at evidENT Tuesday to Thursday. Outside work, I am on the committee of the local residents association, helping to create a shared vegetable garden with funding from the Mayor.
