Shirish Patel

Governor's Personal Statement

I am a Post Graduate Engineer with businesses management experience. I also have a great interest in health and at a personal level practice Yoga and Meditation. After retirement, I have become a Therapist and offer help with Mental/Emotional and Body level issues. Through MacMillan, I have completed a course to support patients and families affected by cancer. I am actively contributing to the following charities: - The Long Eaton and District 50+ Forum – as a Treasurer - Gujarat Samaj, an Ethnic charity (Indian Gujarati community) – as a Committee Member and Assistant Treasurer. In the past, I have served as a Trustee on the Board of Nottingham Counselling Services. I believe that more can be done in the preventive side of health. Education and early help can prevent manifestation of serious diseases and health problems.
