Tim Deakin

Health blogger and Express Pharmacy marketing consultant


Originally an English graduate who followed a career path into the world of book publishing as an editor, Tim has spent the last 7 years of his working life as a content marketing consultant with a particular passion for health and wellbeing. Having worked with a diverse range of businesses including physiotherapists, chiropractors, dentists, hypnotists, nutrition and supplements companies, health mattress brands and even a UK health tech distributer, Tim has a broad understanding of the consumer healthcare market.

Areas of expertise

Having been a consultant to the Express Pharmacy team for several years, Tim sees himself as a blogger who explores the questions that might often be asked by the man or woman on the street:

“I don’t have a medical background or even any training as any kind of a health professional. But as a layperson I like to write about those simple and often overlooked questions that people often feel too embarrassed to ask – typically because they think they should already know the answer.

“I’m a writer and so I am as confused by complicated medical terms as the next person, which is why I think it is often important to investigate matters like acid reflux, hair loss and erectile dysfunction in a simple format based around an open mind and a willingness to ask questions.”

Staying healthy

Tim enjoys keeping fit and eating healthy, although not always necessarily at the same time. His first love is rugby, which he has played since the age of 10, although he has recently discovered the addictive and painful sport of Crossfit.

Interesting fact:

Tim says,

“Some of my favourite facts revolve around sleep, which is the foundation for health. The most basic of which is this: humans can live for longer without food than they can without sleep.

“That’s worth bearing in mind when you think you are staying healthy but are stuck in poor sleep patterns.”
