Medical writer and journalist
An experienced and capable medical writer, health journalist and magazine editor, I can offer freelance reporting and writing, promotional copywriting, project planning, commissioning and editing, proposal development, press releases, clinical articles, backgrounders and books.
I’m probably one of the most experienced freelance medical journalists available in the UK: until autumn 2006 I edited the GP journal The Practitioner for many years, and before that worked on the GP newspaper Pulse. I also have useful in-house and agency public relations experience and understand the needs of executives working in PR and marketing.
As you would expect of a clinical writer with a background in primary care, my specialist topics are the classic chronic disease areas, including cardiovascular medicine, diabetes, respiratory medicine and smoking cessation, dermatology, gastroenterology, rheumatology and psychiatry. I also write regularly on topics in pharmaceutical marketing.
If it’s needed, I’m computer savvy too. I can sub using Quark Xpress running on a Macintosh, set up a great weblog on any subject or hunt down a hard-to-find author.
Clients? In addition to working for various PR agencies and magazines, I’m part-time clinical and CPD editor at the pharmacy magazine Chemist+Druggist, and a regular author for the pharmaceutical industry newspaper Pharmafocus and the pharmacy counter assistant’s monthly magazine OTC.
