The quality of my service stems from skills and knowledge developed over more than 23 years.


As a freelance medical writer and editor, I have experience extending back to 1999 in working with a range of clients, comprising pharmaceutical companies, medical communications agencies, and publicly funded bodies.

I have a strong track record for client satisfaction. Below are some comments:

“We received some excellent feedback from the client, so I just wanted to let you know. The draft you sent us really hit the mark.”

“I am very impressed about the level of accuracy. Great work!”

“Fantastic – thanks Neil!”

“I thought you did a great job on the paper. It was a tough one to rewrite/edit.”

“I just wanted to say thanks for your excellent work this year. I feel that we can place a lot of trust in you, as the work you’ve provided thus far has been of a high standard.”

My previous positions as a medical writer in a pharmaceutical company and a contract research organization (CRO) gave me a thorough understanding of the needs and expectations of the pharmaceutical industry, provided me with experience in writing a wide variety of documents for different audiences, and taught me the value of customer service.

Scientific Assistant in the Department of Medical Affairs at Sanofi, a major pharmaceutical company. My tasks included preparing journal manuscripts, posters, medical information monographs and trial summaries, clinical study reports (phase IV), abbreviated expert reports, and conference proceedings.

Medical Writer at Parexel International, a contract research organization. My work mostly involved writing and editing clinical study reports (phases I-III), but also periodic safety update reports for marketed drugs.

As a postdoctorate research fellow, I published papers and book chapters, and presented my work at a number of international meetings as abstracts, posters and oral communications.
