Nuala Healy

My current role

I am involved with providing screening and symptomatic breast services at the Cambridge Breast Unit. I also support and participate in the teaching of medical students, registrars and fellows.

I specialise in breast and oncology imaging.

Previous history

I completed my undergraduate medical training at the National University of Ireland (NUI), Galway, Ireland.

I subsequently undertook a lab-based MD investigating the role of miRNAs in breast cancer and achieved a Masters in Clinical Education, both from NUI, Galway.

I completed my radiology training at St. James’ Hospital, Dublin and achieved fellowships of both the Royal College of Radiologists, UK and the Faculty of Radiology, Ireland. I completed a breast fellowship at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin, Ireland before joining the Cambridge Breast Unit in 2017 as a clinical fellow.

I was appointed as a consultant radiologist in January 2018.

Personal interests

I really enjoy participating in research, performing service evaluation and audit and finding ways to improve our imaging services. I thoroughly enjoy teaching students and healthcare professionals and acting as an educational supervisor.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, cycling, watching TV series and reading.
