Health and medical writing is a specialist area of the content and copywriting industry that requires key background knowledge from your writer.

Your writer must also have unique skills in adapting medical terminology or concepts to words that are not only engaging to read but which the intended audience can understand.

Whether you are a small clinical practice; a large medical company; part of the pharmaceutical industry; a charity or seeking medical writing for another reason, I can help.

I can write for both B2B and B2C audiences.

I am a nurse by background and I have worked for 20 years in the NHS and in other organisations.

Specialisms I have worked in include:

  • Respiratory Medicine
  • Emergency Departments
  • Urgent Care
  • General Medicine
  • General Practice

Industries I have worked in as a nurse also include:

  • the Military
  • the Department for Work and Pensions
  • the Health Insurance sector

The experience I have leaves me ideally positioned to write specialist and informative content and copy for you.

I understand how health care systems work and where private and public sectors meet.  I have worked extensively with professionals and teams from the entire health sector.

As a nurse I have researched and written academic papers and articles for health journals.  I have undertaken audits of services and written reports of the results.

Producing written content for patient information materials was also necessary in my previous roles.

Ensuring that health-care is evidence based and offering the best care to patients is a strong value I hold.

Written materials are a crucial part of the communication process in the health industry.  It is vital these materials are well researched, engaging and clearly presented.

The benefits of hiring a registered nurse who is passionate about writing to produce your health materials are:

  • I offer excellent communication skills – I can directly adapt my writing style to suit the audience and make it easy and engaging for them to read and understand.
  • I have worked with people from every walk of life as a nurse.  When writing for you I can picture the target reader in front of me and write as if I am speaking directly to them.
  • Experience in providing information to help people make difficult decisions.  This skill is directly transferable to producing health marketing materials and patient information.
  • Expert healthcare knowledge and understanding of medical terminology.  I can understand complex medical information and crucially translate this into language the reader will understand and act upon.
  • Skills in research and finding information from reputed and reliable medical sources.  Once sourced I can adapt and use the information to provide supporting evidence for the content I write.
  • I understand you!  Having worked in various healthcare environments I understand you.  I know the pressures you are under; the targets you might have to meet, the policies and the legal and ethical constraints on your work.
