Ian Spafford

You all know what an exceptional chair he was but some of us will know that he was also a wonderfully supportive colleague and friend. I became a chair at the MPTS just as he was retiring. He was my mentor at the first hearing I chaired. If I know anything about chairing a hearing it was because he taught me. He was unstinting and generous in the time he gave to me. 

A small group of us who were involved in that (very long) case have met in London several times over the years. 

I only met his wife, Reshma, once at a mental health tribunal training day, but please send my most heart felt condolences to her and their children, who I did not meet but heard about when Ian and I met. 

We will all miss Ian very much
