Below, you’ll find the main services I offer to my clients. Some are provided as a private contractor, and some are provided via my Media & Communications agency, HealthWeb Solutions (where I’m the Technical Director), as appropriate to the project and the client.

I have experience of numerous sectors, but I specialise in services for the healthcare and charity sectors – I’ve spent the last few years embedded here, so I understand these environments the best at this point.

I prefer to build long-term, collaborative relationships with people and organisations who share my values.

  • Tutorials for a broad range of audiences
  • Tailored content for the healthcare and charity sectors
