From Medicines to Medical Writing: an alternative career for pharmacists

As a medical writer and a GPhC registered pharmacist, I have always been passionate about optimising patient outcomes and ensuring evidence-based use of therapies. I thrive on creating medical education materials to support the clinical development of other healthcare professionals.

Medical writing is an exciting alternative career path for pharmacists who are passionate about being at the forefront of pioneering scientific research. Being able to turn clinical trial data into meaningful educational materials, tailored to specific audiences is something I find highly rewarding.

Working in medical communications allows me to utilise my pharmaceutical knowledge to support clients in bringing their strategic aims and ideas to life. Having worked in the NHS as a clinical pharmacist across both primary and secondary healthcare services, I can effectively relate to fellow healthcare professionals. With vast experience working across multiple therapy areas including cardiology, respiratory and endocrinology, my pharmaceutical expertise and background allows me to efficiently undertake my role as medical writer while taking into consideration client-specific and national health priorities.

I thoroughly enjoy working within medical communications and more specifically love working at LCW Consulting. At LCW, we are a group of highly dedicated, professional and enthusiastic individuals, each person bringing their own personal attributes to provide the best possible services for pharmaceutical clients.

Medical writing interlinks my passion for patient care, health education and content creation. Pharmacists work across all aspects of healthcare, but since stepping into the field of medical communications, I have not looked back.
