Register here to join our In Conversation Live with Fraser Nelson

Fraser Nelson, Editor of The Spectator and columnist for the Daily Telegraph, will be joining Professor Sir Simon Wessely, RSM immediate Past-President, for a conversation about his career, how the government has recently responded to COVID-19, his thoughts on the NHS100K campaign, vaccine mandates, and the political landscape that lies ahead.

Instead of charging for this webinar, we are asking people to support the Royal Society of Medicine in these uncertain times. Now more than ever, we need your help to continue our work. Please consider making a donation for watching this webinar. Thank you for your generosity.

Fraser began his career at the Glasgow Herald before joining The Times as a business reporter. He was appointed political editor of The Spectator in 2006 and its editor in 2009, since then he has overseen a doubling of magazine sales.

The British Society of Magazine Editors awarded Fraser the 2013 Editors' Editor of the Year and in the same year he won the British Press Award for Political journalist of the Year. Fraser is the only UK journalist to have simultaneously held the top industry awards for editing and political writing.

He is also a columnist for the Daily Telegraph, a director of the Centre for Policy Studies think tank and he has presented two Channel 4 documentaries about inequality.
