Laura McCardle

News Editor/Senior Reporter

Location icon United Kingdom

I am a qualified reporter with more than two years experience of health journalism, writing for both print and online platforms.

I currently work as a news editor at Tomorrow's Guides, which publishes national health and social care news. It is my responsibility to source, write and edit news, features and analysis of the sector. Prior to this, I worked as health reporter at the Reading Post, where I interviewed Ed Miliband and Andy Burnham about their campaigns against the NHS reforms. I also worked closely with the local hospital, breaking exclusive stories about a management crisis and debt problems.

In addition to health writing, I also have experience of crime, entertainment, and political journalism.

I have a shorthand speed of 100 words per minute, a strong understanding of media law and a strong knowledge of social media networks.
