WHAT SORT OF PROJECTS DO YOU WORK ON?

Do you provide a manuscript editing service?

Yes, I provide a full editing package, including substantive English language editing, proofreading, and formatting in accordance with journal guidelines. I will also check the content of the manuscript against relevant reporting guidelines, such as CONSORT or STROBE, and provide top-level feedback on the scientific content. The aim of this process is to eliminate grammatical and language errors, reduce wordiness, and improve clarity and logical flow in order to produce a final manuscript that is ready for submission.

HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE AS A MEDICAL WRITER?

I have been a medical writer for more than 12 years, working for both medical communication agencies and as a freelancer. During this time, I have worked with most leading pharmaceutical companies and on a wide range of project types, including publications, medical affairs and market access.

 

WHAT THERAPEUTIC AREAS HAVE YOU WORKED IN?

 

CAN YOU ATTEND MEETINGS IN PERSON?

Yes, I am available to attend face-to-face meetings, including congresses, Ad Boards, Steering Committee meetings etc. Travel expenses and travel time will be charged in addition to my usual fees.

 

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?

For ad hoc medical writing, I charge GBP 75 per hour (plus VAT where applicable). I'm also happy to work on a fixed fee basis, with each project individually priced according to the scope of the work.

To give some idea of the costs of fixed price projects, I have put together a rate card including some rough estimates for typical projects. However, these are only ballpark figures and the final agreed price may be less or more depending on the extent of the work. If you would like a detailed estimate for a project you have in mind, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Discounts are available for not-for-profit organisations. Please get in touch for more details.

 

WHAT IS YOUR AVAILABILITY?

 

DO YOU TAKE ON INSIDE IR35 ROLES (UK CLIENTS ONLY)?

No, I provide professional medical writing services across multiple clients and projects on a purely outside IR35 business-to-business basis.

 

DO YOU PROVIDE A COACHING OR MENTORING SERVICE FOR ENTRY-LEVEL MEDICAL WRITERS?

Whilst I am always happy to answer one-off questions, I do not currently provide a paid-for coaching or mentoring service for entry-level medical writers or established writers who are looking to transition from a permanent to a freelance role.

I have written a couple of blog posts about my experience transitioning to a freelance role, which may be of use to anyone who is considering the freelance route.
