Welcome to the Guild!

The Guild of Health Writers is a national, independent membership organisation representing Britain’s leading health journalists and writers. It was founded in 1994 to encourage the provision of readable and accurate health information to the public. Members write on every aspect of health and wellbeing, from innovative medical science to complementary therapies and lifestyle issues. They value the training and networking opportunities that the Guild provides. In the words of television doctor Chris Steele "We all gain by being members".

The Guild of Health Writers provides services to those who wish to find a health writer, or want to contact a wide range of health journalists. The Guild publishes a directory of its members listing contact details and special interests. Friends of the Guild can buy the directory at a discounted rate and attend specified Guild events.
