This is just to let you know that unfortunately Ian Forrester, Senior Development Producer of BBC Backstage was taken ill last week and is now recuperating in Hope Hospital in Salford.
At the moment he is in a serious but stable condition and is being well cared for by the staff at Hope and his family.
[Edit 04/06/10] Now that Ian's family have set up the Caring Bridge site we're recommending that people wanting to drop him a line use that channel instead.
Flowers aren't allowed in ICU, but cards are, and can be sent to:
c/o Intensive Care Unit
Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust
We will keep you updated when we hear anything more but until then we hope that you can have Ian in your thoughts and let his other close friends know.
Dr Adrian Woolard
