Carina Rosalind Livingstone (1961–2023)

On 13 March 2023, Carina Rosalind Livingstone, aged 62 years, of North Lancing, West Sussex. Dr Livingstone was a former member of the Society.


After graduating with first class honours from the University of Bradford and undertaking a hospital pre-registration placement, Carina had a varied career initially in research and education and latterly in primary care and patient/medicines safety.

She was admired and respected by her colleagues for her warm, calm but resolute manner and ability to “get things done”. Her kindness to others never wavered, even during her terminal illness and she will be greatly missed by all.

Carina was a much loved wife of Duncan (also a former pharmacist), mum to Kathryn and Robert, and recently became a grandmother to Beatrix.

A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held later in the spring (date and venue to be confirmed).
