Catrina Dwyer, Menter Training, Cardiff

Catrina Dwyer

Managing Director
My career in health and social care began 16 years ago in Cardiff when I established a domiciliary care company to support the elderly and those with physical and learning difficulties. A deviation into health, spending 5 years with the UK’s leading healthcare technology solutions provider, gave me an insight into the challenges facing health. In 2016, completing my Masters degree showed me how education can be used to further understanding and development within industry. This, combined with my experience in health and social care, highlighted just how important effective training and education is, not only to patient safety, but to delivering great healthcare outcomes.

James Dwyer

Chairman
My role is to develop and help implement the strategy for Menter Training. I established a domiciliary care business in Cardiff along with my wife, Catrina 16 years ago. In 2008 I became the General Manager of a multinational medical software company. This is where I saw the benefits of integrating health and social care having worked in the areas of remote health, district nursing, unscheduled care and medicines management. Returning to the UK in April 2018, my personal mission is now to help integrate Health and Social care through our businesses in the UK. Given workforce development is a key factor in this, I see Menter Training as having a crucial role.

With significant change on the horizon, I see Menter Training playing a pivotal role in helping providers meet this challenge by upskilling their staff and growing their businesses

My passion is to deliver what we call ‘beyond the certificate’ training so that employees can be more than a health and social care worker and make a positive difference to their own lives, to those who count on them every day and to the organisations for whom they work.

I am also the Chairman for Pineshield Health and Social Care Services as well as the UK lead for 3DAnatomical. 

My main passion outside of work is sailing where I have been involved in multiple world and national championships as well as offshore races such as the Fastnet and Sydney to Hobart races. I combined this passion with my profession by establishing Sailability in Cardiff, a charity that promotes sailing to people with disabilities.
