Greenwich: Leslie Clark

I became a Public Governor representing our Public members who live in the Greenwich borough in 2020.

About me

I am retired and involved in various voluntary activities. My background is in science and technology, starting my career in Chemistry research but spending most of it in software engineering management. My last job before retirement was managing a department producing software for mobile phones at Nokia.

I have been a volunteer minibus driver for the Trust since 2011, taking patients on trips and to appointments. I also volunteer at Samaritans and on the Independent Monitoring Board at one of our local prisons where the Trust provides healthcare.

Why I became a Governor

I think the NHS is one of the UK's greatest institutions and I would like to do what I can to help make it even better for local people. I hope that my combination of skills and insights will be useful.

My interests and hobbies

I'm very interested in local conservation and biodiversity, especially bats and hedgehogs. I have led bat walks in several local parks and given talks about bats and hedgehogs to park friends' groups.

I'm also interested in astronomy and enjoy visiting London's galleries, museums and theatres. When I get time, I'm an avid reader.
