He also completed an MD (Res) from the University of London in 2014 and maintains a strong academic background.

Dr Chandra undertook specialist training in Cardiology in the London Deanery (North-West Thames Rotation) and subspecialty training in Interventional Cardiology at Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust. Following this he was awarded the prestigious British Cardiovascular Interventional Society (BCIS) International Fellowship on Vancouver Island, Canada. This training developed his expertise in managing complex patients with heart disease, including those conventionally considered ‘high-risk’. He is passionate about incorporating the use of technology, physiology and imaging in the management of heart disease to optimise patient care and maximise patient outcomes.

In his spare time, Dr Chandra remains passionate about sport and fitness. He continues to play football weekly and is a keen runner. He has recently taken up CrossFit and enjoys snow-boarding in the winter. Dr Chandra is an avid film fan and traveller and can often be distracted by discussions on these subjects!

Current Appointment:
Dr Chandra is now based at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust and specialises in Interventional Cardiology. He manages patients with heart disease in the emergency, acute and chronic settings. He often deals with patients who have suffered heart attacks, shock and cardiac arrest, heart failure, and those with heart valve and heart rhythm abnormalities. His expertise include diagnostic coronary angiography, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), permanent pacemaker implantation (PPM). Dr Chandra attends Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust twice a week to participate in the structural heart disease programme. This includes presenting complex patients with aortic valve disease and performing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI).

Dr Chandra is the ‘Lead for the Cardiac Catheter Laboratories’ where, together with colleagues, he has overseen the modernisation of the 2 catheter labs with additional adjunctive technology. This allows patients to benefit from physiological and detailed imaging assessment of their coronary arteries and has facilitated the development of an ‘Advanced Coronary Intervention Programme’ for patients who would otherwise be considered complex and ‘high-risk’. Dr Chandra is also ‘Lead for Clinical Audit’ and has an important role in ensuring high quality clinical governance standards are met, maintained and improved upon. This entails reporting clinical activity to national audits including the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society, Myocardial Infarction National Audit Project, Cardiac Rhythm Management, Cardiac Rehabilitation audit and the National Heart Failure audit.
