Public Directory

Do you need a media expert with specialist knowledge of health and medicine? The Public Directory of the Medical Journalists’ Association provides details of members who are available for consultancy and freelance commissions.

You can search the Directory for members by name, or by the services you need — such as report writing, media training and crisis communications. Fees will depend on experience.

As a membership organisation, the MJA cannot make any specific recommendations so we suggest that you check members’ profiles and websites for details of relevant experience and client feedback.
