Clare Fitchett


Clare is a keen explorer and has undertaken various expeditions with both the military and the British Exploring Society. Some highlights include being an expedition medic in the Peruvian jungle in 2018, and most recently in 2019 as a medic on a collaborative joint sea and land expedition with the Jubilee Sailing Trust to Iceland. Having completed her first expedition aged 16 with the Air Training Corps, she has a particular passion for helping young people realise their potential through participation in expeditions and firmly believe that all young people should be given the opportunity to explore.

Clare enjoys teaching and instructs on both military and civilian medical courses, including Advanced Life Support, Advanced Paediatric Life Support and military trauma Courses. More recently, she has become an examiner with the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh after passing the Diploma in Immediate Medical Care in 2018.

Clare currently works as a Critical Care Paramedic at Thames Valley Air Ambulance, and also a  Reservist Army Officer in the Royal Army Medical Corps. She is undertaking an MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice and believes that continued education and learning is the key to being the best clinician you can be.
