Philip Salt – a tribute

We are saddened to hear last week of the passing of BDRF Trustee Philip Salt .

Philip was a wonderful man who was kind, considerate and philanthropic to the core. Philip served as a BDRF Trustee since 2009 and was very active in supporting our work, sponsoring events and helping to develop our strategy.  He also engaged with our researchers very closely and was a keen mentor of several of our funded projects. He will be sorely missed and our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

BDRF Chair of Trustees, Asha Senapati comments;

“BDRF was privileged to have Philip Salt as a Trustee for over 10 years. He was immensely supportive and generous and a pleasure to work with. He brought his enormous expertise within the healthcare industry to our organisation and was also very helpful to our young researchers. Our condolences go to his family and Salts Healthcare where along with us he will be sorely missed.”

Gabby Thorpe, Lecturer in Colorectal & Stoma Care Nursing, University of East Anglia, Norwich and fellow BDRF Trustee comments;

“Philip Salt was extremely kind, generous and supportive as a person and a real champion for people with a stoma and for stoma care specialist nurses. He worked tirelessly to foster an ethical and transparent relationship between industry and professionals working in colorectal and stoma care, for which we must all be hugely appreciative. His death is a loss for anyone working in stoma care in the UK, and my condolences go especially to his family and to all at Salts Healthcare.”
