I am not a medic, legal expert or trade union official - just an accomplished writer who has had articles published in National papers (including The Guardian) and magazines, and an occasional blogger, I have also been performing my self-penned award-winning play to great acclaim on four continents.
You can download and read my biography here.

The idea for this service developed because I happen to have a number of Medical friends who, though clearly highly intelligent people, had difficulties at work, and found my writing skills to be literally life-saving. Here are three case studies:

The Prison GP

Dr. 1 got a job as main GP in a prison and found that she was soon rattling cages because she discovered some serious malpractices, and set about making some urgent changes. She soon began to encounter significant resistance and was being undermined by colleagues. I helped her write to the Medical Director of the PCT. Click on the image to download the letter.

The Harassed GP

Dr. 2 was dismissed from a GP surgery, with various allegations made to justify this. He subsequently found himself also under attack from the local PCT and the GMC, and decided to take the case to Industrial Tribunal. I helped him write his submission to the BMA, as he was dissatisfied with their solicitor's efforts. Click on the image to download an extract.

The GP's son

This is not medical, but concerns Dr. 3’s son, who was denied entry to a London University when he went to register. I wrote this letter to the Dean on her behalf. Click on the image to download the letter.
