Professor O'Neill is an international opinion leader in cardiac electrophysiology, is actively involved in research and has published over 200 papers in peer-reviewed journals. His research addresses the mechanisms of atrial fibrillation and the use of novel mapping, imaging and computational modelling techniques to better understand the reasons why a patient develops AF and therefore how best to manage it. 

He lectures regularly in the UK and abroad on atrial arrhythmia management. He treats patients with simple and complex heart rhythm disturbances of atrial and ventricular origin, in particular atrial fibrillation and tachycardia in the context of inherited and acquired structural heart disease.

His private practice is based at The Heart Rhythm Clinic, 88 Harley Street. He performs interventional electrophysiology procedures at the Harley St Clinic.

In June 2018, the Daily Mail published the profiles of the top ten UK electrophysiologists recommended by cardiologists themselves. About Professor O'Neill, his peers were quoted as saying: "On the leading edge, he has built an international reputation based on his prolific research work. He is also known to provide a measured opinion on what is best for patients. He is an extremely astute doctor, particularly in diagnostics. He will look at patients very objectively and pick up very subtle clinical signs that others will overlook."
