Tue, 21 Mar 2023

Manx Care chairman Andrew Foster has passed away following a short illness.

In a statement, Manx Care said: "On behalf of Manx Care, we would like to offer our sincere and heartfelt condolences to Andrew’s wife, Sara, his children and grandchildren, and his broader circle of family and friends who are very much in our thoughts today."

"We would also like to recognise our own colleagues and our many counterparts in the UK NHS who were privileged to work with Andrew during his long and very distinguished career, and whose lives and careers he touched with his warmth and wisdom. We recognise how this news will also affect them."

"Andrew Foster was a consummate Chairman, leading the Manx Care Board with clarity of thought, and compassion for patients and service users. A strong and influential leader, he was a real advocate for engaging with his colleagues in order to create a culture of openness, improvement and transparency. Within Manx Care he has laid firm foundations for high standards of care, transparency and accountability, and it was his vision and determination that led us all on the start of our journey to become the best small Island health and social care system in the world. He was dedicated to his role, and we are all devastated that we have lost him so quickly and far too soon."
