Farewell Graeme Smith

I was saddened to read this week that Graeme Smith is leaving The Pharmaceutical Journal (PJ, 2014;292:358). This is a tragedy for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.

In a difficult 15-month period since Olivia Timbs was made redundant (PJ 2012;289:683), Mr Smith has coped superbly as joint acting editor. Before that, as managing editor and then deputy editor, he provided Ms Timbs with invaluable support. And earlier, during the interregnum between the retirement of Douglas Simpson and the appointment of Ms Timbs, I could not have managed without his solid backing during the several months when I was acting editor.

Mr Smith’s qualities as a pharmaceutical journalist and his dedication to the profession were recognised last year in the award of a fellowship of the Society. I wish him the best of luck in his future career and I hope that whoever is appointed as the next PJ editor will be able to match his abilities and his integrity.
