Haymarket has merged the editorial teams for its medical titles GP and Independent Nurse.
As part of the changes the publisher has appointed Emma Bower, who launched Independent Nurse four years ago, as editor of GP.
Bower will now take on the editorship of both titles and responsibility for the newly merged team, which will be responsible for producing content across the magazines and the group’s Healthcare Republic website.
“So far, much of the crossover between our print and digital operations has developed on an ad hoc basis. Now we can tailor the structure of the editorial team to properly fit the needs of both platforms, and allow for further growth,” said Colin Cooper, editor-in-chief of Haymarket Medical Media, in a press release.
The integration will take effect from June 16.
