Marie Martinalli – Medequip Assistive Technology Ltd
After joining Medequip in February 2017 initially as an IG Officer focussing on the development of its governance and safeguarding agenda, I was promoted to Head of SHEQ & Governance in July 2018 and am responsible for delivering the SHEQ & Governance strategy. During this time, I have developed and implemented the Centre of Excellence training teams which sit with my remit.
Prior to joining Medequip, I have spent the last 15 years working within the Health & Social Care sector primarily for two large NHS organisations in patient safety and clinical governance roles. I have a wealth of experience with NHS and governing body standards such as NHS IG Toolkit, CQC Inspections, ISO standards, TSA and the Social Care Act requirements in Adult Social Care. Prior to working in Health & Social Care I had a varied career in Retail as an Area Sales Manager for the O2 retail shops, various recruitment consultant roles with well-known high street recruitment agencies and even had a very short taste of army life!
I believe that I have the passion, drive and belief to deliver the vision and values of BHTA and its objectives and ultimately influence how we as an association develop good practice and promote higher standards and quality within our industry and the members we serve.
