Chief Executive Officer of Manx Care, Teresa Cope, said: “We look forward to welcoming Professor Reid, and working alongside her over the coming years – I have no doubt that her vast experience and knowledge will be a great asset to us. Our previous Chairman, Andrew Foster CBE, is still very sorely missed following his untimely passing. However, I’d like to personally thank Sarah Pinch, who has been acting as interim chair since March and has upheld Andrew’s values impeccably throughout. Her excellent guidance during this time has been integral as we develop our services.”

Professor Reid said: “I am delighted to be joining Manx Care. It is a critical time for health and care services and I am looking forward to building on all the progress made in delivering the best quality care for all.”
