Kathryn Godfrey

Practice and learning editor Kathryn Godfrey brings to Nursing Times her experience of being both a nurse and a journalist. Kathryn trained at St Bartholomews’s Hospital, London and worked as a staff nurse in cardiac care before specialising in health visiting. Her work as a health visitor and family planning nurse for Islington and Tower Hamlets has left her passionate about public health interventions and what they can do to improve people’s health and reduce the disease burden on the NHS.

After studying for a post-graduate qualification in journalism, Kathryn has focused on health writing and editing. She has written news and features for a wide range of publications including the British Medical Journal and Health Service Journal. As well as clinical issues and health policy, Kathryn has a strong interest in consumer health, writing a series of mini-books on topics such as first aid and women’s health as well editing a consumer guide to prescription drugs.

Working with her jobshare partner Ann Shuttleworth, Kathryn is responsible for overseeing the practice content of Nursing Times, and for developing Nursing Times Learning, a valuable educational offering for our nurse audience. This suite of online units is written by expert nurses, the testing element within them allows nurses to see how their knowledge has increased and the personalised certificates can be used to demonstrate PREP requirements.
