STRUCTURE: Mike Pinkerton has been selected as the new chief executive of Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals Foundation Trust, subject to approval by its board of governors.

It follows Ron Calvert’s departure to Australia in September.

Mr Pinkerton joined Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals in June 2012 as director of transformation and has been acting chief executive of the trust since Mr Calvert’s departure.

He previously worked at The Rotherham Foundation Trust, but has previously worked in Doncaster for a long period. He was appointed as a director at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals Trust when it was created in 2001, and previously worked at Bassetlaw Hospital and Community Service Trust. He is due to become substantive chief executive in December.
