About us

We’ve been working as an extra pair of hands for busy communications teams since 2013. Between us, we have more than a century’s experience working in the NHS, private healthcare, sciences, biomedical research, finance and more.

We’re skilled at transforming specialised terminology into plain English. In fact, writing about scientific research, technical advancements, and changes to health and care services – and what it all means for you and your stakeholders – is second nature.

We work completely flexibly and are happy to work with your in-house team or preferred suppliers to get the job done quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. Contact us to find out how we can work together.

Ali and her team of copywriting talent are one of those rare finds that any organisation would wish to make. I’ve been particularly impressed with their ability to distil corporate jargon and create highly accessible, flowing, client-friendly copy that hits the brief each and every time.
