The spine team

Our spinal nursing team, led by Catherin Cullinane, is dedicated to looking after patients with spinal problems.  They work closely with consultant spinal surgeons to make sure you are cared for by nurses who know just what you need.

Spinal conditions are our speciality

The team of over 20 people is made up of healthcare assistants, specialist nurses, sisters and managers.

Catherine is dedicated to training her team up to the most exceptional standards.

In her own words, “One day I will be an old lady and these nurses will be looking after me. This is my opportunity to train them to do this properly.”

Patient testimonials

Patients are cared for by dedicated staff, evidence shown in some of the heartwarming testimonials the team have received.

It’s hard for me to fully explain how important you have all been to me on this 6th floor. You all keep me smiling when I’m not feeling quite so good and optimistic if I start to waiver. It’s fabulous to know I have so much support and you always keep me motivated.36 year old lady, following a femoral replacement
Everyone was always so helpful, so friendly, so courteous and so professional. When one feels as ill as I did when admitted, and for some time afterwards, it goes a long way to help when smiling faces and willing helpers so that ‘extra mile’ to make things easier and it was very much appreciated.56 year old lady following a total hip replacement
