Meet the Team
Hello, my name is Marie Spink and I'm the Team Manager
I have worked in patient services for over 11 years. During this time, I have learnt the importance of a person- centred approach. Understanding what really matters most to people, is vital, so that they can become the driving force, to improve their own health & wellbeing. Our communities too, have a pivotal role to play in improving the health & wellness of our neighbourhoods. I am passionate about strengthening our communities to be the best they can, staying healthy, happy, and independent.
