Dr Rachel Clarke

Rachel Clarke is an English physician specialising in palliative care for the National Health Service. She’s also an author, journalist and activist. Formerly a current affairs journalist, Rachel retrained to work as a doctor in 2009 and firmly believes that there is a good way to approach end of life care.

Reviewing her book, Dear Life: A Doctor’s Story of Love and Loss (2020), Guardian reviewer Nicci Gerrard wrote, ‘In her heart-wrenchingly tender and candid account of being alongside people at their endings, she shines a light into the world of the dying.’
