  • Tribute: David Lawrence Lamb (Lawrie) Robertson

    By David Thomson

    I join with colleagues in paying tribute to Lawrie Robertson who sadly passed away on 9 April 2018 after a long illness. Lawrie was a highly regarded and well respected pharmacist, a profession he was extremely proud to be a member of, and had been, for over 60 years. After registration in 1955, his early dabbling in the pharmaceutical industry probably only served to reinforce his commitment to a lifelong career dedicated to community pharmacy. As an independent contractor, he eventually ...

  • Tribute: James Ewart Subscription

    By David Hamblin

    It was with much sadness that I learnt of the passing of James (Jim) Ewart in January 2018. Born in Edinburgh in 1926, he studied pharmacy there and spent the first part of his career working for the Co-op in Glasgow. He moved to South Norfolk in the late 1950s to manage the Loddon Pharmacy for Rees Coghlan, and spent the rest of his career as superintendent of his Loddon and Norwich pharmacies. He was much liked and respected by his patients and staff for his sound advice and consistent ...
