What WriteCare offers

WriteCare aims to offer you great value for money as well as high standards of editorial support tailored to your needs and objectives. You may face challenges such as budget constraints and governance issues.

With so much competing health information easily available these days, it’s more important than ever to produce credible, up-to-date content that people can easily understand, that they can really rely on and that meets their needs.

WriteCare can provide a range of skills and services that you may need in producing health and care information, including:

  • research and analysis of emerging or existing issues
  • reviews and updates of current information
  • face-to-face and phone interviews
  • writing original content, including summaries of much longer, more complex documents
  • collating contributions from other writers, such as clinicians
  • developmental editing to restructure and rewrite draft information so it’s as readable, relevant and easy to follow as possible
  • copyediting to make sure content is clear, consistent, correct and complete
  • advising on structure, tone and style, including developing a specific house style and guidance on its consistent application
  • proofreading as a final check for errors, like spelling mistakes or broken web links.

What do you need?

You may need one or more of these services, depending on the specific purpose of your information and who it’s aimed at.  

Your particular priority might be to support changes to your organisation or services by managing people’s expectations and encouraging a shift in attitudes. The focus of your information might be person-centred care and to help individuals make informed choices about their care. You may want to strengthen internal and external relationships across the sector or local system, joining up services and sharing good practice to support continuous improvement.

WriteCare can help you with:

  • information for patients at various stages of their journey
  • health and care advice for the public to encourage positive changes in behaviour and prevention of ill health
  • guidance for health and care professionals to support better ways of working and individual development
  • case studies to share stories and lessons learned
  • websites and web pages to complement targeted initiatives
  • intranet content to improve employee engagement
  • policy and strategy documents to explain and implement better practice at national, regional and local level
  • research reports that set out evidence and findings clearly
  • corporate information to deliver meaningful messages and support compliance with guidelines, regulations and legislation.

All this work involves using plain language or specialist terminology when appropriate, challenging assumptions and making sure the content, tone and style all suit the intended purpose and audience.

Exactly what you need from WriteCare may not be immediately obvious. Together we can agree what support would be most helpful (and when) to reach the best outcome within your timescales and budget.
