Patrick Strudwick


After training to become a composer, Patrick Strudwick decided writing about the world rather than composing obscure chamber music might be a more useful exploit, and so in 2002 started contributing to Attitude, the gay lifestyle magazine. From there he moved on to newspapers such as the Times, the Independent, the Guardian and Mail on Sunday, interviewing, investigating and focusing on his favourite topics: health, social affairs and the arts. He is obsessed with, and terrible at, tennis. Patrick’s piece for Mosaic ‘One virus, four lives: the reality of being HIV positive won the 2015 Medical Journalists’ Winter Award for ‘science explained’.
