Health trust appointment

Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has appointed Paul Robinson as chief finance officer.

Paul, who will begin his role in March, joins from Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust where he has worked for two years as executive director of finance.

During this time he was the lead for development and delivery of financial planning, successfully delivering a surplus, whilst achieving efficiency targets.

Paul has previously worked in a range of NHS Trusts and Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) during his long career and has a strong track record of delivering financial targets in large, complex healthcare organisations.

Paul O’Connor, chief executive of Sherwood Forest Hospitals, said: “I am delighted to welcome Paul to the Trust. He has worked in the NHS for over 25 years and brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience of financial leadership.

“Paul will play an important role in ensuring that we deliver our financial objectives, enabling us to invest more money into improving the quality of our services on offer for our patients.”

Paul is a chartered management accountant and lives in Sheffield with his wife, Clare, and their three boys.

He will be a key member of the board of directors. He said: “I am excited to be joining Sherwood Forest Hospitals at a time of immense change for the Trust.

“While challenges still lie ahead, I am confident that I can bring all of my experience and energy to help continue the improvement journey and deliver excellent services across the local healthcare community.”

Paul replaces Margaret Ashworth, who has served as interim Chief Financial Officer since June 2014.
