A Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire health trust has appointed a new Executive Director for People and Organisational Development.

Nicola Hartley, currently the Deputy Director of HR at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, will join Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) on August 1.

Nicola has worked in a range of public and private sector roles including at Jet 2, Morrisons and HJ Heinz and replaces Rosie Johnson, who retired from the Trust in March.

Nicola said:” I’m really looking forward to joining RDaSH. It is a health trust that leads the way with care for its patients and fully supports its carers, patients’ families and staff.”

Kathryn Singh, Chief Executive of RDaSH, said: “I am delighted that after a national recruitment campaign we have appointed someone with such a broad range of expertise, experience and skills to join our executive team and Board. I know Nicola will be a great addition to our team and we look forward to her joining us.”
