A conversation with Andrew Foster (1hr webinar)

About this event

Continuing our series of short webinars from prominent QI leaders from across the NHS and beyond, we welcome back Andrew Foster, Chair Of Manx Care on Friday 11 February 2022.

Andrew Foster retired after 12 years as Chief Executive of WWL (and chair of NHS Quest) in October 2019 and then spent a year working for NHSE as 'Executive Lead for Leadership' and then various Covid related projects, particularly the national campaign to bring back retired staff. In September 2020 he was appointed as Chair Designate of a new body, Manx Care, which would go live on 1st April 2021 and be responsible for managing all health and care provision on the Isle of Man. These had previously been run directly by the government and were beset by long standing problems of poor performance, lack of financial control, workforce shortages and almost non-existent clinical governance. This presentation covers the experience of the first nine months including a completely unexpected and huge challenge which emerged after three months.


Andrew is the Chair Of Manx Care, the integrated provider of all forms of health and social care on the Isle of Man which comes into being on 1 April 2021. Previously he was interim Managing Director of the NHS Leadership Academy and Executive Lead for Leadership at NHSE/I. This followed 12 years as Chief Executive at Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS FT including being a founding member and Chair of NHS Quest. Previously he was Director of HR for the NHS at the Department of Health.
