Claire Eldred

Head of Marketing and Communications

I joined the DSUK team in March 2020 as Head of Marketing and Communications. I've been working in healthcare communications for more than 15 years, and was thrilled to join DSUK at such an exciting time, when the charity is growing fast and there are many exciting developments taking place in the understanding and treatment of Dravet Syndrome.

Although there's much greater awareness about Dravet Syndrome today compared to even a few years ago, there's still much to be done to raise awareness, educate professionals and ensure that families have access to comprehensive and up to date information about all aspects of living with Dravet Syndrome.

My role at DSUK is to ensure we're doing all these things and more - via our website, social media, educational leaflets, literature and other resources, as well as through our conferences and events. 

It's a privilege to be part of the Dravet Syndrome community and I am inspired every day by the amazing children and adults living with this condition and their families.
