Editorial Wednesday 5 June 2013: On Andy Cowper's conflicts of interest

I've been meaning to write this post for a couple of weeks, and had no time to do so.

It's about my conflicts of interest, real or perceived, with clients for whom I work.

This stuff matters in other fields, so it also matters in mine.

In the past, I've tried to do this proactively when relevant, as with the ongoing projects I did for NHS Alliance. Those have all now finished, so who knows, I might even start writing about their stuff again ...

My current paid commitments are as follows.

Andy Cowper - conflicts of interest
I am the editor of Health Policy Insight, which I fund and run. Obvs.

I work for Health Service Journal as their Comment editor, and also do paid projects for them, such as the HSJ Commission On Hospital Care For Frail Older People.

I do bits and pieces of communications work for NHS Providers.

I work with Wellards as their conference chair and programmer.

I do some ad hoc work with Road Communications, advising them on NHS issues.

I'm proud to work with all my clients, and so am very happy to put this information in the public domain - and will keep it updated.

If you'd like to discuss working with me, you can email andycowper@hotmail.com

(Oh, and obviously I'm the campaign manager for Simon Burns to be the next Secretary of State for Health).
