The Trust's new Chief Financial Officer

13 Oct 2011 09:29:46

John Somers has been appointed Chief Financial Officer at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT) with effect from 1 September 2011.

John has a wide range of Board level experience in both the public and private sector and has worked in the NHS for the last three and a half years, initially starting at Rotherham Hospital before being seconded to Wakefield Community Health Services as Director of Finance.  

For the last two years John has worked for NHS Lincolnshire until his appointment to TRFT. John’s previous experience has included working for Tinsley Park Holdings Limited as Group Finance Director which was responsible for the development of Sheffield City Airport and the Airport Business Park. John was also Director of Finance at Rotherham College of Arts and Technology.  

John commented: “I am thrilled to return to The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust. Rotherham Hospital is my local hospital and it means a lot to me to be here” “There are some huge financial challenges ahead for the NHS and I feel that I can make a real difference and in turn ensure that the Trust provides the best levels of care possible for patients and the community.”  

Sheffield-born John has lived in Rotherham for the last seven years and in his spare time enjoys cycling, swimming, watching football and going to the gym. If he wasn’t Chief Financial Officer at TRFT he would love to be in control of the purse strings at Sheffield Wednesday Football Club where he would happily sanction a few high profile signings to take them back to the Premier League. John has three children, two young daughters and a son and enjoys beach holidays, especially in the South of France. A lottery win would see him retire to a villa overlooking St Tropez.
