Claire began her career as a learning disabilities nurse (RNLD) in the 90s where she worked at Tadworth Court in Surrey. She qualified as an RSCN at Great Ormond Street Hospital, consolidating her training on the neurosurgical ward as a staff nurse.

Claire has spent the last 20 years working in a children’s hospice both in the community and in-house. Ten of those years have been at Julia’s House where she was instrumental in setting up the Wiltshire hospice and end-of-life community care. 

Claire is passionate about putting the child and family at the heart of great quality care.
