Clare Grady Smith

Community Service Manager

As the Community Service Manager my role is to support the community teams to ensure families have choice of where their child is cared for, allowing them respite, End of life care, symptom management and care after death at home.

I started my career as a nursery nurse in a local special needs school before commencing my career in nursing nearly 30 years ago. Firstly, in adult nursing then as a children’s nurse working in local hospitals across the north west, before coming to Derian 21 years ago, working in various departments before commencing my present role. Throughout this time, I have continued to study for a Degree in Paediatric Palliative and End of life care and at Masters level in Non-Medical Prescribing and Management. This knowledge, experience and skills allows me to support and guide the teams, ensuring they provide care for the child and families at the highest standard.

I balance my role with the support of my husband, three teenage sons and extended family.
