Martin Havenhand, Chairman at the Trust, said: "Louise has been appointed following a rigorous recruitment process which resulted in a strong field of candidates from which the Appointments Panel was able to make its choice. Throughout the process, the Trust Board has been clear that it was looking for a compelling and inspirational leader that would bring clarity of vision and purpose to lead the organisation at this critical time. The Appointments Panel strongly believes that Louise brings the experience and skills that the Trust needs.” 

Louise Barnett said: “I am thrilled to have been appointed as the substantive Chief Executive of the Trust. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to continue working with dedicated Trust staff, Governors, health and social care partners and the local community to ensure our patients receive the high quality health care they deserve." 

Jean Dearden, Lead Governor at the Trust said: “Louise impressed everyone with her passion and values.  We are delighted with her appointment and look forward to continuing to work with her in order to provide the best health care provision for the people of Rotherham.”  

Louise has been the Trust’s Interim Chief Executive since November 2013 on secondment from Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, where she has worked for several years, recently as Interim Chief Executive.
