Following 40 years of exceptional and dedicated service, Pete Phillips has decided to step back from full time working and start enjoying even more holidays, playing his ever growing synthesiser collection and reducing his personal best swimming times.

Pete graduated as a Pharmacist in 1981 from the University of London. Following various locum placements, the pull of a return to Wales became too much for Pete who started working with Dr Steve Thomas in 1983 at the Mid Glamorgan Quality Control Laboratory (the predecessor of SMTL).

Pete diversified into the medical device field where he has excelled throughout his career, becoming an expert in gloves and latex allergy and various medical devices evidenced by participation in numerous CEN and British Standard committees, and representing the Welsh Government on a number of committees.

His technical excellence and innovative leadership has developed SMTL into a leading authority in medical device testing and technical assurance, and we are hugely grateful for his outstanding contributions to our industry.

Fortunately, SMTL and Welsh NHS will retain Pete's decades of expertise when he returns to SMTL in April 2022 as a part-time Technical Director.
