Jan - Director of Clinical Services - Claire House

Jan joined Claire House in 1995, when she played a key role in the establishment and development of the hospice, and was a volunteer trustee for 15 years.

She has been a nurse for almost 38 years, 25 of which have been spent at Alder Hey as a Macmillan Nurse and a Palliative Care Nurse Consultant and became our Director of Clinical Services in June 2012.

Jan lives in Wallasey with her husband and two daughters and enjoys skiing, cycling, gardening, walking and scuba diving.

She said: “What I love most about being a part of Claire House is leading a hugely talented team who work tirelessly to maintain the high quality care we give to children, young people and their families, both in the hospice and in their own homes, and to lead in the development of the hospice service.”
