Martin Edwards 

Martin Edwards is IT Manager at St Vincent’s. He oversees a team of 20 who are responsible for providing the network, storage and infrastructure for the IT systems across the health service.

 

Martin says working for a hospital has a very different feel to other roles he has held in the past. “You know you are contributing to something truly meaningful,” he explains.

 

“If we do our jobs well, the teams in the Intensive Care Unit or Emergency Department don’t have to worry about whether they’ll be able to access the information they need. They can focus on caring for people who are critically ill. You are reminded on a daily basis that you are part of providing a better service for patients and that is very rewarding.”

 

“I also really value being involved in other aspects of the organisation. I’m part of the sustainability committee which is looking at ways to reduce our environmental footprint and I’ve raised funds for our cancer care centre. The opportunities are there if you want them.”
