About us

SPZ Associates are writers, editors and proofreaders with roots in medical research and journalism. If you are struggling to translate a piece of complex science into language that will make sense for other scientists outside your field, non-scientists, or members of the public, we can help. We work primarily but not exclusively with health and social care organisations, and those they exist to help.

Our Director’s diverse client list includes the Department of Health, the NHS, most recently through Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Oxford Health Foundation Trust, major medical research charities including the Wellcome Trust, the pharmaceutical industry and a range of lay and professional publications including all the UK broadsheets, the Lancet and Nature.

Alongside our strengths in communications, we have an exceptional address  book of contacts at senior levels across health, social care and journalism. We can find the right people to help you, whether to develop new ideas or to take your messages wider.
