Our team of news writers includes: 

Edward Bartel

My core experience is in PR and marketing in the pharmaceutical industry. After completing my MA in 2002 I set to work building a reputation as a forward-thinking communications specialist. I have also nurtured an interest in freelance investigative healthcare writing, which has seen my work published in several leading science magazines.

Philip Briggs

With a bachelors degree in Biology, I was initially unsure how I would start applying my new-found knowledge - until I fell into science writing. After ten years in the field as a freelancer, I feel I have pushed the boundaries of science writing and will continue to do so for Spire Healthcare.

Jeanette Royston

On completing a degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Warwick, I landed my first job in biomedical publishing at the age of just 22 - and I haven't looked back. With several years' experience I have written for various healthcare publications and online websites. I have a particular interest in developments in cardiovascular health and cancer research.
