Clare Bowen is an accountant by profession, mother of Bethany, Will and James, and widow of Richard.
In 2006 Clare and Richard lost their beloved daughter Beth during a routine laproscopic spleenectomy. Richard died suddenly shortly after the Coroners Inquest into Beth’s death.
Since then Clare has spoken nationally about her family’s experience and continues to campaign for greater openness and transparency around error in healthcare and for a greater understanding of human factors in healthcare.
Clare is a standing group member of the Clinical Human Factors Group. In 2010, Clare began working with Murray Anderson-Wallace to make the film of “Beth’s Story” in the hope that others can learn from her family’s suffering.
