Two non-executive directors will serve a second term of office on a health trust’s board.
Lawson Pater and Jim Marr, whose terms of office were due to come to an end this month, have been re-appointed to the roles at Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) until November 30, 2015.
The appointments of non-executive directors are made by the trust’s Council of Governors.
Lead governor Sheila Barnes said: “Both Lawson and Jim have made a valuable contribution to the trust since they were appointed to the board of directors and in the re-appointment process were able to clearly demonstrate their continuing commitment to the trust, its service users, patients and carers and showed great enthusiasm for continuing in the role.”
Welcoming the re-appointments, chairman Madeleine Keyworth said: “I’m extremely pleased that Lawson and Jim have been re-appointed. I value the contribution they make and the support they provide to me as chair and to the board of directors, Council of Governors and the trust as a whole. They have shown a willingness to positively challenge, contribute and learn and their individual expertise and experience means they are both held in very high regard.”
RDaSH provides a range of mental health, learning disability, substance misuse and community health services across Doncaster, Rotherham, North and North-East Lincolnshire and in Manchester.
