Dr Richard Jenkins

CEO, Barnsley NHS FT and Interim CEO, The Rotherham NHS FT

Richard graduated in medicine in Sheffield in 1991 and went on to train as an endocrinologist and general physician. He worked as a consultant in Mid Yorkshire Hospitals and stumbled into a series of leadership positions before making this a definite career choice. He has been a Medical Director in two Trusts prior to becoming a Chief Executive in 2017. He may be the only NHS CEO able to code in Python (a bit).
