Biography

I\'m managing editor of Acupuncture in Medicine and am author of Understanding Breast Cancer (pub John Wiley). I won a special commendation in the Medical Journalism Awards 2002 (Financing Healthcare). A former teacher, I trained on local papers then moved to health & social services journalism via Social Work Today. I wrote regularly for the Guardian (Society and Charity sections) as a freelance between 1993-1998, then was news editor and acting editor for Therapy Weekly from 1998 to 2003. I\'ve worked as press and communications officer for Brent and Tower Hamlets councils
