— Ellie Broughton

I am a freelance journalist and content producer with nine years’ experience writing for titles including The Independent, The Guardian, The Telegraph, VICE and the BBC.

I specialise in stories about health. I’ve covered stories for VICE’s health site, Tonic, and Hearst’s, NetDoctor. I’ve interviewed a leading GP in the Ebola emergency camps, and written about how the sexual health cuts in the UK have affected the public. 

I have experience sourcing and writing sensitive personal stories with people who have direct experience of ill health and difficult diagnoses. In December 2018 I interviewed a woman diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 29. In the past I have I interviewed people who had been diagnosed or lost loved one to cancer and heart disease for Raconteur. Until September 2015, I worked as the features editor at the leading magazine for GPs, Pulse, and was named one of MHP’s 30 Under 30 for my work in this role.

I have also produced copywriting for the University of Greenwich, The Telegraph, Guardian Labs, Time Out and St James’s House. I often write about London arts and events. 

I currently freelance on Thursdays, and spend the rest of the week working on the content production team at Guardian Labs. I have previously worked as a sub-editor for The Independent and a digital production journalist for The Sunday Times, as well undertaking freelance copyediting and proofreading for small independent clients.
