Lucky Akpotor

I am the Staff Governor for Havering and currently work as Deputy Manager for Havering Community Recovery Service. Prior to this, I worked in the Redbridge Community Recovery Service and the Redbridge Older Adults Mental Health Team.

Having worked in Engineering and IT in the past, I can best describe my experience as a fine balance of strong operational management, clinical leadership, and corporate experience. Since joining NELFT for over ten years now, mine has been a positive experience of being well supported both in my clinical role and provisions for personal development. I would therefore like to give something back.

The NHS continues to evolve and helping colleagues to understand these changes will help ensure that patient outcomes are not compromised.  I believe that good and relevant information at the right time will help staff continue to feel supported as they work cooperatively in providing excellent service to patients.
