Clare Norton

Founder Governor and Volunteer

Clare Norton was involved with St Richard’s from the very start, supporting Jenny Bulman in the planning and preparation stages of the first ‘Hospice at Home’ service, and taking a role as a volunteer nurse in the early days. She was one of the few people in the team that had extensive experience in hospices, and in this interview she talks about working under the hospice pioneer Dame Cicely Saunders and other inspirational early palliative doctors. Clare’s support and guidance was influential to the developing service for many years both as a nurse and later a governor, and she continues her work as a volunteer to this day.
