Professor Michael Russell

Professor Michael Russell was a towering figure in the smoking cessation field, and it is sometimes forgotten that he also did a session in the alcohol clinic at the Maudsley hospital for many years. Patients and practitioners with whom he worked remember him as a kind and compassionate clinician. His entries in case notes were exemplary. Concise, beautifully written in neat handwriting, they managed to capture the essence of the person and the alcohol problem.

He gave a key-note address, 'A personal view of the application of research findings to policy formation', at the SSA Symposium in 1999, and was made an Honorary Fellow in the same year.

Michael Russell's obituary is here.
