Care Board: Trustee
Transport Board: Trustee
Group Board: Chair
Fenwick Board: Trustee
Trafalgar Board: SCA Rep
Les is Chair of the Group Board and also sits on the boards for SCA Care and SCA Trafalgar Dental Services. He has been a Trustee of the SCA Group since 2002.
Les, New Forest born and bred, says his claim to fame is that he was born in the Fenwick Hospital (more years ago than he cares to remember!). He says he is pleased and proud of what SCA has achieved at the Fenwick in a short period of time.
Les has worked for a number of NHS organisations in Hampshire, initially in Human Resources and then in a variety of planning and commissioning jobs. He became an executive director of Southampton and South West Hampshire Health Authority in 1988.
He was appointed Acting Chief Executive of Southampton and South West Health Authority in 2001 and took early retirement following the Health Service reorganisation in 2002.
He returned to work for the NHS in a variety of roles, mainly related to strategic change and clinical service procurement. He finally retired from the NHS in 2013 after 38 years in the service.
Les has a keen interest in the development of Social Entertprise and the role which it can play in delivering high quality customer focused services to those in need. He is particularly interested in the development of the health care side of the enterprise and hopes that previous experience will be of value to SCA during the next few years when there will be a number of major changes, opportunities and challenges in the care sector.Back to Board Members
