Angela Smith

Chief Executive Officer

Angela Smith joined Friends of Moorfields in June 2015 as Executive Manager, and was appointed as CEO in November 2018. She has many years Charity Management experience.  Before joining Friends Angela spent three years  working for a charity that supports people living with HIV and AIDS in Africa and the Global South; and before that she spent many years working for a charity that supports Independent Advocacy Services, both for service users and their families.

Angela was born with cataracts and has been a Moorfields patient all her life. Over the years she has undergone and benefited from numerous eye operations and treatments which have been both sight-saving and life changing. At the beginning of February she had an artificial cornea fitted and has been completely amazed at the difference it has already made to her life. Angela embraces the opportunity to use her skills and experience to give something back to our wonderful hospital.  She said this means a great deal to her, and she feels passionately about the work everyone at Moorfields does!

“I'm proud to be a friend to the BEST hospital in the country – if not the world. They look after my eyes –
so I want to look after Moorfields!”
