Medical Writing

For several years I wrote a weekly contribution to the Sunday Telegraph in the form of responses to readers’ medical questions in the Life section of the paper.

The content on the NetDoctor web site is intended to give accurate short summaries of medical information for the public. I was involved in the production of the content on the original NetDoctor site and most of that material is still in use.

I wrote a series of 16 books on mainstream medical topics under the NetDoctor flag in the mid 2000s. The subjects covered were: High blood pressure; Angina; Arthritis; Asthma; Breast cancer; Bowel cancer; Chronic fatigue; Dementia; Depression; Diabetes; How to keep healthy; How to stop smoking; Irritable bowel syndrome; Menopause; Osteoporosis; and Strokes.

I have done a number of other medical writing projects for the public, including patient information on medical test kits and information for use in renal transplant units.

Medical writing commissions are welcome. Please contact me for an informal discussion if you have a project that I may be able to help with.
