Tribute to David Michael Stead

David Michael Stead graduated from the London School of Pharmacy in 1971 and began his 43-year career in hospital pharmacy as a preregistration pharmacist at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

From 1985 to 2005, he was chief pharmacist at Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and then became medicines procurement specialist pharmacist for NHS South West until his retirement in 2014.

He was author of the ‘Best practice standards for managing medicines shortages in secondary care in England’, published by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society in 2014 and, in his retirement, continued as a Great Britain representative on the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) hospital pharmacists’ working group on medicines shortages.

He was also a magistrate on the Poole and Dorset benches for 18 years, serving as chair of the criminal and juvenile courts.
