We are sad to learn of the death of one of our former Non Executive Directors, Pat Newman.

A former Councillor who had a role with a range of voluntary and community-wide groups, Pat was also deputy chair at the hospital having served on the Board from 2002 to 2009, helping the Trust make the journey towards Foundation Trust status.

We’d like to send our deepest condolences to Pat’s family, including her husband, Bill. Our thoughts are with them at this sad time.

Pat was a strong proponent of all things Barnsley and worked hard to improve every aspect of living in Barnsley. She will be missed.
