Senior Research Nurse
Claire has been nursing for 18 years, the first half of her career was spent in orthopaedic trauma and vascular surgery in the old Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. She says it was a challenging and an enormous learning curve to say the least!
In 2006 Claire travelled the world working as a nurse in Australia to fund her adventure, and then returned home to Scotland! From there she gained employment within the emergency department in the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh for around 9 years. During this time, Claire got married, had two children, and worked in community nursing for a short while.
Claire is new to research but is loving the challenges it brings, the vast amount there is yet to learn and being part of something that will have a positive influence on the delivery of patient care.
