Don named President of popular Bath medical engineering charity

Don Foster, MP for Bath, has been confirmed as the new President at the Bath Institute of Medical Engineering (BIME).

A long term supporter of the charity’s groundbreaking work, Don was delighted to accept the offer from BIME Chairman, Dr. Patrick Magee.

Based at the Royal United Hospital Bath, BIME is an independent charity working to improve the quality of life of children and adults with disabilities and healthcare problems through the use of technology.

As a former science teacher, Don has taken a keen interest in BIME’s projects and most recently has backed Wizzybugs - a vehicle to assist children with limited mobility - and BIME’s Day Clock, which helps to combat time orientation problems amongst people with dementia.
