The Trust’s Board welcomes two new Non-Executive Directors

21 Jun 2011 11:34:18

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust has welcomed two new Non-Executive Directors to act as advisors to the hospital’s Board of Directors. Gabby Atmarow from Bramhope, Leeds and Alison Legg, from Hickleton near Doncaster, have now taken up their positions at the Trust.  

Gabby is well acquainted with the Trust in her role as Director of Nursing with the former South Yorkshire Strategic Health Authority. She also served as Chief Nurse in the Trust for a short time and later acted as an advisor during the Swine Flu Campaign in 2009. 

Gabby says: “I’m really pleased to be appointed to the Board. I want to continue the great work of the previous Non- Executive Directors and to work with current Board Members to positively influence services for patients, both in the community and in the hospital. 

“The NHS is facing some tough challenges at the moment; not least of these is the financial situation. It will be a big challenge, but we have amazing staff across the newly integrated Trust and I am lucky to be in a position of knowing some colleagues here already so I know first-hand how hard they work”. 

Gabby is also on the Board at Leeds Metropolitan University and is a serving Magistrate in Leeds. Fellow Non-Exec Director Alison Legg has more than 30 years’ experience with professional services firm KPMG and was a Partner at the organisation between 1993 and 2008. 

Alison says: “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to join such a high achieving Board of Directors and Foundation Trust. I have a strong background in Corporate Finance and Business Management which I hope will be helpful, particularly given the financial climate for the Health Service at the moment. 

“I am looking forward to helping to steer the Trust through this challenging time” adds Alison. “This new environment is also an opportunity for the Trust to broaden its remit and explore new areas and methods. The service integration with Rotherham Community Services creates huge opportunities to further improve the care the Trust as a whole can offer patients.” 

Alison is a keen supporter of voluntary and community organisations in her own time. She is on the Board of Trustees at the Eureka! National Children’s Museum in Halifax and is also involved with St Ann’s Community Housing Trust in Leeds.
