Collinson enhances global medical assistance team with key appointments
Collinson, a global leader in the provision of medical, security and travel risk management services, continues to enhance its medical assistance capability with the appointments of Marianne Jackson as Chief Medical officer and David Spicer as Nurse Consultant. These strategic hires follow the appointment of Dr Simon Worrell as Global Medical Director earlier this year.
Marianne, a qualified Surgeon, A&E Consultant and General Practitioner, has over 30 years of experience in Emergency Medicine. Formerly holding the role of Regional Medical Director at AIG, Marianne had responsibility for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, amassing a wealth of knowledge relating to the medical risks and life-threatening scenarios faced by travellers.
As Chief Medical Officer, Marianne will manage Collinson’s clinical cases, liaising between administrative and medical staff to ensure customers receive the highest standards of medical advice and care globally. Marianne will report to Dr Simon Worrell, Collinson’s Global Medical Director.
Marianne commented: “Collinson is recognised worldwide for its high-quality medical assistance, a field I am enormously passionate about. I am delighted to join as we continue to enhance the medical assistance services we offer to our clients, supported by an ever-increasingly experienced team to ensure we provide travelling employees with the right level of medical care.”
As Nurse Consultant, David is responsible for leading, teaching and mentoring the nursing team. David joins from Healix, where he managed a team of nurses and cared for patients from a diverse range of clients within the insurance industry, banks, media companies, as well as some of the largest multinationals in the world. In addition, David has significant experience of managing the healthcare of the 27,000 crown servants worldwide under the Foreign and Commonwealth Office healthline contract and was seconded in-house at the FCO for two years.
Scott Sunderman, Head of Assistance at Collinson, added: “We pride ourselves on offering clients the highest standards of protection when their staff travel abroad, so we employ only the finest medical talent. Marianne and David have a wealth of knowledge and experience, and bring significant capability to what is already an extremely strong global team of doctors and nurses.”
Collinson recently entered into a strategic joint venture with Drum Cussac, the global risk and security specialist, to offer a 24/7/365 integrated TRM solution to help organisations fulfil their duty of care and enhance the wellbeing of employees travelling abroad. Collinson also partnered with worldwide healthcare leader, Aspen Medical, providing the capability to deliver medical services in remote, challenging or under-resourced locations.
