Claire grew up in Manchester and trained in Southampton. After working for a few years in hospital medicine in Southampton she took a break from medicine to do a ski season in France. Claire then relocated to the South West in 2014, drawn by the coastal way of life. She completed her final year of GP training at Dartmouth Medical Practice and was very pleased that there was a job available for her to continue working here afterwards. In her free time she enjoys cycling the hilly lanes of the South Hams, swimming in the sea and going on mini adventures with her young son.
