Nadia Dallsingh RGN
DipHe (Critical Care Nursing), BSc(Hons) Cardiac Nursing, MSc Healthcare Practice
My clinical and research interest is mainly intervention cardiology in relation to CHD, Angina, ACS, PCI, CABG, cardiomyopathy, TAVI and cardiac rehabilitation.
I qualified as a Registered General Nurse (RGN) in April 1994 and embarked into cardiology nursing since November 1994. Over the years I have experience in critical care nursing on CCU and HDU, diagnostic cardiac investigations, coronary risks prevention/intervention nursing, research and cardiac rehabilitation. I have worked as critical care nurse for ten years, but was also passionate about diagnostic cardiac investigations, and was able to gain experience in this area at King’s College Hospital and Ealing Hospital. During the years from 2003 to 2014, I practiced coronary risk prevention and intervention nursing, as well as cardiac rehabilitation. This role involved screening patients for cardiovascular risk factors, recruiting participants for research studies, management of underlying risk factors and coordination of cardiac rehabilitation services. In former roles, I was responsible for setting up, management and coordination of cardiac rehabilitation services in the community for Ealing and NHS Wandsworth, which has now been amalgamated with cardiac rehab at St George’s Hospital. My present role entails pre-operative assessment for cardiology patients before their planned procedure.
My aims are to develop my career and promote services for coronary risk prevention and cardiac rehabilitation in the UK and other countries.
Specialties: Setting up and delivery of service for coronary risks prevention and cardiac rehabilitation.
