Women’s Health is the UK’s number one authority on health and wellness; leading the charge in helping you create a happy, healthy and fit lifestyle.

Daily, we produce informative and educational features to support your health journey and in doing so, embrace conversation within our communities.

It’s why we’ve won PPA Consumer magazine of the year for three years running and individual team members have collected notable accolades at BSME, Digital PPA and Guild of Health Writers Awards.

But back to you. At WH we understand that wellness is unique to each and every one of you and it’s why you’ll find approachable, applicable and actionable advice for all women.

Here on womenshealthmag.com/UK – and at every touch point from print to events– we cut through the wellness noise to deliver you positive, engaging, informative content that’s based on leading expert comment and scientific research.

We know that our relationship with you is based on trust and our team of journalists and editors are not only passionate about healthy living, but also highly trained in reporting and editing on the topics you’re concerned about.

The Editorial Team

The Women’s Health team reflects our core audience: you. It’s how we understand and translate hard-line science into informative features and news that you’ll want to read and share.

Let us introduce the team and share how you can contact them.

Claire Sanderson, Editor-in-Chief

With over 17 years’ experience, Claire has held a number of senior roles on high-profile media brands including Assistant Editor of Look and look.co.uk, Acting Deputy News Editor of Grazia, and Senior News Writer of First magazine. Today, when not smashing it in the gym she leads the charge on Women’s Health.

Since joining the Women’s Health team five years ago, Nikki has perfected the art of a cynical eyebrow raise, investigating wellness trends from psychobiotics to CBD and reporting on everything from the dark side of the FODMAP diet to the impact of Covid on the UK birth rate. When she’s not editing the words you read in the print magazine, you’ll find her running around the streets of Leyton, east London, trying and failing to commit to a weekly yoga practise and performing reiki on her cats.

Emma Gritt, Multiplatform Director

When it comes to wellness, if it’s a bit ‘out there’, Emma has probably given it a go – or wants to. When she’s not at work, she is most likely to be found tending to her plants and pets, enjoying being out and about on foot or her bike, lost in a good book, bingeing trashy TV, or planning her next trip away.

Roisín’s role at Women’s Health is all about light and shade. You might find her conducting celebrity cover interviews akin to gossipy therapy sessions one day, then editing a highly-sensitive and science-packed investigation into the women’s healthcare crisis the next. A force for inventive storytelling across all mediums, Roisín has scooped three industry awards – including the PPA’s prestigious Writer of the Year – and is long-time host of WH podcast Going for Goal.

Bridie Wilkins

Bridie looks after WH’s fitness content across digital, print, social and membership. She could – and does – talk about the benefits of exercise until the cows come home, and after eight years as a fitness journalist, trying and testing trends across the country, you can trust her judgement. Her ultimate goal? To reverse the ‘exercise for aesthetics’ rhetoric, and to prove fitness is accessible to all.

Alice Barraclough

With nearly a decade of journalistic experience – in print, online and social – at national newspapers and lifestyle magazines, it’s fair to say Alice has tried it all when it comes to health and fitness. From packing herself off to an extreme Aveduric retreat in Sri Lanka and sweat-testing every new fitness fad to running the London Marathon and completing a 70.3 IronMan, Alice now looks after WH’s food content. With a ‘food first’ ethos, she is here to help you decipher exactly which foods will support your health, and which macro-counting, pasta-replacing, intermittent-fasting, 13-day cleanse is just, well, a scam. A keen baker and host, her favourite dessert has to be pavlova (with lots of summer berries and whipped cream, of course).

Georgie Lane-Godfrey

As well as overseeing all the features in the magazine, Georgie looks after the content on our brilliant membership platform, Women’s Health Collective. At work, her interests lie in the intersection between wellness and the female experience. At home, she’s more concerned with actually managing to complete a workout without being sat on by either her dog or child.

Kate Cheng, Health & Fitness Writer
