Tina Spittle

Lecturer

School of Health, Science and Wellbeing

As a pre-hospital clinician I am passionate about providing the best quality care to patients within their own environment. I began my career as a graduate with a BSc(hons) in Biomedical scientist and joined the NHS in an acute hospital within the operating department. I developed as a clinician and moved to work in rheumatology in a community hospital which sparked my love of working with patients to give holistic care. I focused this passion when I joined the ambulance service and progressed my career to become a paramedic, and later a mentor to students.

I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching as a side-line whilst studying and can teach both the piano and swimming to various levels. This, combined with some work facilitating with the university, opened my eyes to an academic progression and joined the university in 2019.
