Haymarket has appointed Emma Bower editor of GP newspaper, following the resignation of Bronagh Miskelly.
Bower joins GP from sister title Independent Nurse, where she is editor.
Following Bower’s appointment, the editorial teams of GP and Independent Nurse will merge, with Bower being editor of both.
Despite this, the titles will be published separately, retaining their distinctly different identities.
Also, Neil Durham, deputy editor of GP newspaper, will take on an expanded role as deputy editor across both GP and Independent Nurse.
Nick Bostock, news editor of Independent Nurse, will become news editor of both titles.
GP is Haymarket’s weekly title for the UK’s 40,000 family doctors and Independent Nurse is a fortnightly publication for the 12,000 primary care nurses able to prescribe drugs in the UK.
All changes are effective from 16 June 2008.
