Brian James is appointed chair of Sheffcare trustees

Sheffcare, the Sheffield charity that operates a chain of nine care homes across the city, has welcomed a new chair of trustees.

Brian James is the former chief executive of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust and has worked in the NHS for almost 40 years, starting in 1975 and working his way up the management chain of a number of hospitals in Cornwall, the South West and the North East before coming to South Yorkshire.

Sheffcare Chief Executive Claire Rintoul commented: “We are delighted to welcome Brian as the new chair of our Board of Trustees.

“He has exactly the levels of experience and enthusiasm in so many different areas that will help our organisation as we move forward in 2024.”

Sheffcare began operating as a not for profit company in 1994, when a number of care homes were transferred out of local authority ownership into the ownership of the company.

The organisational vision was to secure the provision of services and provide high quality care for older people in Sheffield at the best possible price.

The charity has now been operating for 30 years and this element of the vision remains the same.

The needs, wishes and aspirations of its clients remain paramount and everything they do is focused on improving the experiences of residents.

As a charity, every penny is invested back into Sheffcare’s homes and the training of the people that work within them.
