Claire's background

Claire started her nursing career at St. Bartholomew’s hospital in London. She has over 35 years of experience in acute London teaching hospitals including 10 years within the higher education sector. Becoming a Sister at St. Thomas’ Hospital ignited a career long interest in leading and developing teams, whilst creating an enduring environment that supports the delivery of nursing excellence and the very best patient experience. Following a successful career in the NHS in a number of senior leadership positions, Claire was delighted to join London Bridge Hospital in 2023.

"Our nurses and the wonderful teams that support our services, seek to deliver the personalised and exceptional care that are at the core of the experience of our patients and their families. The desire to offer the very best is a golden thread through everything we do here."

Claire believes that nursing’s unique place at all points of the patient’s journey, supports and enables compassionate and safe care, a belief that is shared by the hundreds of amazing individuals who work here.
