Vicky Gayle

Vicky has reported on inequalities for chronically unwell and disabled people inside their homes during the covid-19 pandemic, and inequitable access to primary care for migrants who become undocumented. Vicky began her journalism career in Birmingham, before ending up in Colchester, where she worked as a news reporter at the Daily Gazette and other weekly titles in north Essex. After a secondment with the BBC’s Shared Data Unit in 2018, she returned to Newsquest where she co-led its first Data Investigations Unit. She was also Black Ballad’s West Midlands commissioning editor for its Black Women in Britain project. Vicky first joined the Bureau to investigate health inequality, but now has a wider focus.
