Dearbhla Coffey is a Spinal Clinical Nurse Specialist at the Princess Grace Hospital. She trained as a nurse in 1998, in Dublin, where she first gained her interest and experience in spinal surgery. She moved to London in 2004, working for eight years within the private sector, specialising in Spinal and Orthopaedic surgery before joining The Princess Grace Hospital at The Spine Surgery London.
Dearbhla sees patients throughout their journey in the unit; from seeing patients in clinic, assessing them and providing them with information, to caring for them as In-Patients on the ward, and continuing to support them following discharge. She is involved in all aspects of patient care and works closely with all members of the multidisciplinary team.
Dearbhla is the first point of contact and support for all spinal patients at The Spine Surgery London at The Princess Grace Hospital, throughout their treatment.
