Marie Gabriel
Chairperson East London NHS Foundation Trust

Marie is currently Chairperson of East London NHS Foundation Trust, a provider of mental health and community health services. Prior to that she was chairperson of health commissioning organisations with budgets up to £3bn, (NHS East London and the City from 2011; NHS North East London and the City from 2012; and NHS Newham from 2003). Before that she was Vice Chairman of Newham University Hospital Trust and previous to that Chairman of Newham Community Health Council.

Marie took up her first Director level role at the age of 23 and subsequently worked for over 20 years in senior roles within local government, housing and the Third Sector. Marie now provides management consultancy for the not for profit sector specialising in organisation and service reviews, partnership brokerage, strategy development and action research.

Her work experience reflects her commitment to realising and building the capacity of individuals, organisations and communities, particularly black and minority ethnic communities. This is also reflected in the range of voluntary work Marie undertakes.

Marie's contribution to the London Borough of Newham was recognised in 2010 when she was awarded Honorary Freedom of the borough and in 2012 her contribution to health was recognised through incorporation on the Health Service Journal’s inaugural 'Inspirational Women' list.
