Covid 19 Response: Niamh Kiely. RANP Cardiothoracic Surgery St James’s Hospital Dublin.

I am one of 5 Cardiothoracic RANPs in St James’s Hospital, Dublin. As a result of the Covid 19 pandemic we have adapted our practice to meet the ever changing needs of both our patients and the hospital. We have transitioned our preadmission surgical clinic and our lung cancer surveillance & survivorship service to virtual clinics, and just like many of our colleagues we too have been redeployed. We are back in ICU caring for covid patients and also in two different private hospitals assisting in the management of our patients who are having their surgeries there.
