Claire Roberts

DipAVN (Surgical) RVN


Claire Roberts, VN Council memberClaire has been involved in veterinary nursing for over 20 years and has worked in private, charity, emergency and referral practices. She has been in senior nursing positions and gained advanced qualifications.

Claire has written numerous articles and lectured at major veterinary conferences ensuring the delivery of evidenced based medicine.

In 2011 Claire set up SynergyCPD which she has run alongside maintaining clinical skills in referral practice. SynergyCPD grew from her desire to support nurses in practice enabling them to feel more confident and empowered, improving knowledge and patient care.

Claire is a big advocate for vets and nurses to learn together within the practice setting and believes that patient focussed care can only be achieved by a patient focussed team.

In February 2020 Claire started a new role as the Professional Development Manger within the Linnaeus group.

Claire is married, has two children and a house full of animals.
