Highly qualified & experienced nurses

Our three cardiac nurse practitioners are part of a new generation of the nursing profession who are earmarked for academic and clinical advancement early in their careers. Each have gained a Masters qualification and have had senior roles in hospital based cardiology. They have all had a major focus on research during their clinical practice.

Amy Spillane

Advanced Nurse Practitioner

Amy Spillane ,Advanced Nurse Practitioner - Eagle Lodge
Amy qualified in Nursing from the University of West London in 2008. During her training in cardiology, she was encouraged to continue her studies and gained a Masters in Cardiology from Buckinghamshire University. She qualified initially as a Cardiac Nurse Specialist and subsequently as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. Sister Spillane became ward manager in Cardiology at Northwick Park Hospital, the tertiary referral centre of the North West London NHS Trust. She was also tasked with opening a new chest pain unit which initially was four bedded and then under her subsequent guidance became a ten bed unit. This work formed the basis of a Research Thesis which has set down the ground rules for creation of chest pain units for others in the NHS to follow. She has several years experience in advanced cardiology nursing. It was our good fortune that she chose to return to Ireland and she joined us in Eagle Lodge in February 2016.
