Jill Morony – Safespaces (Cornholme) Ltd
As owner and MD of Safespaces for 23 years I have extensive experience in the manufacture, supply and export of products for disabled people and particularly those with learning disabilities. Establishing a strong UK and export customer base, I have significant knowledge of the strategic challenges facing growing companies and the need to introduce infrastructure to support business growth and development. I understand the challenges of implementing processes to comply with regulatory changes in an increasingly competitive marketplace, while maintaining ethical standards and integrity.
I was Chair of the BHTA Childrens Equipment Section for 4 years and am a strong advocate for the legal and accessible provision of equipment for disabled children. I continue to work with stakeholders to progress these rights, ensure they are implemented, and that the complex routes to funding are simplified and clarified.
During my initial term on the BHTA Board of Directors we supported companies through the joint challenges of Covid and Brexit, and the increasingly complex issues brought about by the Medical Device Regulations. We continue to advocate for support in these and other areas as outlined in the new BHTA Manifesto and to navigate through the changing landscape for medical equipment manufacturers and suppliers.
As a Board member I am keen to invest time and energy into supporting the BHTA to meet its core aims in supporting healthcare companies, and have their brands recognised as providing ‘best value’ solutions.
