Claire has been a nurse in surgery since qualification in 1998, both in the UK and in Australia. From 2000 to 2014 Claire worked within the specialty of Cardiothoracic, within the Intensive Care setting and also as a Advanced Nurse Practitioner on the Cardiothoracic ward.
 
Claire successfully gained the position of Consultant Nurse Lead for Preoperative Assessment at UHCW in September 2014, being responsible for leading and developing the centralised service across two hospital sites, to achieve a patient focused service with an ethos of continuous quality improvement and innovation.
 
In September 2016 Claire commenced an National Institute Health Research (NIHR)/ Health Education England (HEE) funded Master of Science by Research in Clinical Practice, at Coventry University.  Claire wishes to pursue development as a clinical academic researcher. Her area of particular interest is if psychological preparation delivered Preoperatively improves surgical outcome in patients with a high anaesthetic risk. She is currently undertaking a systematic review to inform future primary research. Claire is committed to change Preoperative practice if there is evidence based patient benefit.
