If you’re looking for an experienced copywriter you can trust, you’ve come to the right place.

I specialise in writing for the health industry, and can translate complex health and medical information into content everyone can understand. And of course, all information is thoroughly researched and checked for accuracy.

“Nerissa’s work is always well-written, well-researched and always delivered on time.”

I’ve worked with Nerissa on a number of projects over the years. I initially selected Nerissa as she is not only a great communicator but a great listener. She really takes the time to understand what your requirements are and who your audience is and takes care and pride in delivering material that hits the mark. Nerissa’s work is always on time, well researched and of course, well written. I would not hesitate to recommend her services.

I’ll be honest. There are loads of copywriters out there, some who have been writing longer than I have.

But before you trust your health business with any copywriter, ask how much experience they’ve had creating compelling health content that is factual, up-to-date and thoroughly researched.


I’m a health communications expert

I’ve been writing content for over 25 years.

For the last 9 years, I’ve specialised in writing outstanding health copy.

As a health communications specialist, I’ve helped many businesses – small and large – develop well-written, credible health copy.

I have a thorough understanding of the health industry and the key health challenges facing Australians.

I can take complex medical information and express it in a way that everyone can understand.

I have exceptional research skills which means that the health content I produce contains the latest research, links to peer-reviewed journals, and evidence-based, best-practice health advice.

So will you trust your important health copy to just any copywriter? Or do you want to work with an expert?

“An absolute pleasure to deal with.”

I recently engaged Nerissa Bentley for content writing services on behalf of one of my clients in the health industry. Nerissa delivered a well researched, high quality article to us on time and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend her services and look forward to commissioning her for more work in the future.

“Simply amazing! A true professional.”

Nerissa from the Melbourne Health Writer has been simply AMAZING!

I have worked with other copywriters before, but Nerissa has shown true professionalism on my project. I could tell that she took the time to understand my business and the business needs.

Nerissa is now considered part of our team and I look forward to working with her in the years to come.
