THE CHAIRMAN and non-executive director of a mental health trust have been re-elected for a second term of office.
Lawson Pater, chairman of Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust\!q (RDaSH) and Tim Shaw, non-executive director, both retained their roles in the latest round of elections to the board.
Lawson, of Doncaster, was first appointed non-executive director in 2009, becoming chairman in 2013.
He has previously held board positions in international companies and has run an executive recruitment consultancy.
Lawson said: “I am delighted and honoured that the governors have the confidence to reappoint me for a further term.
“I am really looking forward to continuing to work with them, the board of directors and all our staff as we continue to deliver valuable services to our patients and service users.”
Tim, also of Doncaster, was initially appointed as a non-executive director in December 2013.
The former solicitor retired last year after 38 years of practice.
He has previously served in non-executive roles in the regeneration and housing sectors, as well as being a school governor and chairman of a school governing body.
He is currently chairman of the charity Doncaster Business for the Community.
Tim said: “I’m really pleased to be able to continue to help provide scrutiny, challenge and support as part of the board of directors and to help ensure that the trust continues to move forward and provide quality care and services.”
