Clare Sutherland

Associate Director for Advanced Practice, University Hospitals Derby & Burton
Clare qualified as a nurse from St Bartholomews Hospital London in Jan 1990. She has a passion for hands on clinical care and after a short period of being pulled into a more managerial role in PICU moved back to the bedside to become a nurse practitioner in medicine in 2001. Since then her career has developed around advanced clinical practice and she has led the service in Derby since 2011. The trust now has a well-established ACP service across all divisions that provide consistent quality care for patients. Clares experience in developing an ACP service led her to engaging with HEE writing the first Multiprofessional Framework for Advanced Clinical Practice in England (HEE 2017) as well as the toolkit that facilitates implementation of the framework and more recently supporting HEE and another Midlands colleague leading the work around governance of advanced clinical practice. Clare’s work with surgery began with co-chairing the extended surgical team (EST) workstream of the Improving Surgical Training pilot in 2015. From this work she supported the development of a curriculum for ACP in surgery, a document that was released in Nov 2020 and endorsed by all 4 surgical royal colleges. The curriculum has now been approved as a credential by HEE and is being currently being revised. Out of work Clare is a retired rally driver, married to Alistair an ex national rally champion. When not working Clare enjoys spending time with her stepchildren, 6 brothers and sisters in law, 15 nieces and nephews, 8 great nieces and nephews … and her own mum and brother and she is about to become a granny for the first time.
