Claire has nearly 35 years’ experience in the NHS, starting as a general nurse and then training as a paediatric nurse in the early 1990’s at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital where she worked on a neurology and metabolic ward before taking up a matron’s post for medical specialties. She is currently Director of Women, Children’s and Diagnostic Services in a Greater Manchester Foundation Trust and has been in this role for 4 years. Claire maintains her paediatric nursing registration and stays close to children’s services both in hospital and community settings, most recently leading on integration between health and local authority child and family services in the local area which has been rated outstanding by the CQC.
