I’ve been writing about health for more than a decade. You’re in safe hands.

Experienced healthcare and medical writer

You’re here because you need an experienced writer who specialises in health and medical writing. Am I right?

You’re in luck.

I might be the most versatile health writer you’ll speak to today… my portfolio spans patient advocacy, policy and PR; advertising and traditional medical writing; all the way through to journalistic storytelling. 

If it’s about health, I can help. 

And, I’ve written for them all.

Top-tier pharma, patient organisations and charities. Health tech start-ups, medical education specialists and clinical research giants.

love to get involved from the start, but am equally happy reimagining something that isn’t quite hitting the spot.

Health writing is everywhere. I know what really works. Let’s not waste any more time.

“Rachel really brought the website to life.”

What about when I’m not writing?

I’m a South-East London gal, mum-of-two, and wife (-of-one), with a love of writing and storytelling – especially stories about how we might live healthier lives in a healthier world. 

I’m a qualified yoga teacher, lover of reading (expect lots of popular science and crime fiction on that bedside table) and coffee-shop afficionado. In another life, I gained a black belt in Choi Kwang Do, having fallen in love with martial arts while living in South Korea. 

On a Sunday night, you’ll find me drinking a G&T, eating a veggie curry and watching Death In Paradise (while dreaming of sunnier climes!) On a Monday morning, I’m ready for anything – mostly chasing around after my sons. 

Let’s talk.

Drop me a line to find out more about me, my rates and availability, and how we could work together.

A note from me:

I work Tuesday through Friday. I’ll aim to get back to you within 24 hours during the working week.
