He is a member of several academic societies and regularly attend and speak at national and international meetings. With an Irish colleague, he set up the Anglo Celtic Collaborative Oncology Group 25 years ago and continues to publish breast cancer studies.

Professor Leonard has always believed that best patient care depends on an empathetic attitude and willingness to listen to a patient's particular concerns and fears. With one of his patients and then research nurse, he helped set up the Maggies Cancer Caring Charity which he continues to advise. There are now 23 UK centres and contacts have led to affiliated centres in Japan, Hong Kong, Spain and Norway.
