Beth Britton - Writer on ageing, health, social care and dementia

From specialist journals to major publications, I pride myself on an approachable and very readable writing style, an ability to communicate key ideas and themes, attention to detail, and the skill to make a convincing argument in the face of a controversial issue.

Thanks to my strong social media prescence my writing is always widely shared, and as a result has become popular all over the world. The content I produce is hugely strengthened by drawing on my personal experiences, whilst other aspects of my work provide constant inspiration, knowledge, and invaluable experiences. Few writers are fortunate enough to be able to bring so many diverse aspects into their writing and still be acknowledged as a supreme communicator.
