Dietitian - Aoife Healy
Cystic Fibrosis Dietitian for the Adult Blackpool Cystic Fibrosis Service
I have worked at University Hospital of South Manchester (UHSM) since 2011. My last role at UHSM involved working as a dietitian with the Heart and Lung Transplant team. I also worked on the cardiothoracic intensive care unit.
I am very excited to join this new team and develop the new Adult Cystic Fibrosis service at Blackpool Victoria Hospital (BVH).

I love to do Irish Dancing- yes.. I mean the Riverdance/Michael Flatley type stuff!
I spend a lot of time each day explaining my name to people—‘Aoife—it’s like EVA with an F, Eefa’
Being a dietitian, it is beneficial that I love food. I’m always interested in tasting and trying new foods. My favourite meal is fillet steak, triple cooked chips and blue cheese sauce but not every day of course!!
