Editing

National newspapers

I edited the health pages of the Daily Telegraph on a sporadic basis in the early noughties. Then I spent five exciting years as Medical Editor of the new, innovative, and award-winning Body&Soul section. 

Research and policy

For many of the organisations I've worked, editing has meant combining written and verbal input from a wide range of sources, and shaping this into a coherent document. I've done this for a wide range of statutory organisations including:

  • The National Director for Mental Health, Department of Health

  • The Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health

  • The Cabinet Office

  • Kings Health Partners

  • King's College London

  • Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust

  • The NHS Modernisation Agency

  • The NHS Service Delivery and Organisation research programme

  • The London Health Commission

  • The King's Fund

Charities

I started off my journalistic career working for a voluntary organisation: as Assistant Editor of the newspaper Disability Now, published by Scope.

I've made sure I worked with voluntary organisations ever since – editing their publications and providing editorial advice. My clients have included:

  • Macmillan Cancer Support

  • The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust

  • Age UK

  • Deep Sea Conservation Coalition

  • Cancerlink
