Victoria Macdonald has been covering health and social care issues for Channel 4 News since 1999 and has won several awards for her stories and investigations. She is closely following the massive reforms of the NHS and all its twists and turns, as well as reporting on changes to welfare and its affects on people with disabilities. In 2007 she exposed a serious flaw in the on-line application system for junior doctors which was allowing anybody to access personal details, including previous convictions. The government was forced to temporarily suspend the site until they could make it secure.
Victoria has also reported on international health issues including HIV and Aids and TB in South Africa and was the first television journalist to interview Chief Butheleizi following the deaths of two of his children from Aids. She is originally from New Zealand and worked for the Sunday Telegraph before joining Channel 4 News.
