Makara Health appoints new associate director Helena Wright

Gina Dootson also takes up senior medical writer position

Southampton, UK-based Makara Health has appointed Helena Wright as its associate director, client relations, and she arrives with a decades’ worth of experience in healthcare communications.

Wright joins from Havas Life Medicom, where she held the position of associate director in its PR and communications team working for a variety of pharmaceutical clients.

She has previously held roles with GSK - where she worked on vaccines, respiratory and corporate communications - and Alliance Healthcare.

Wright said: “Joining Makara is really exciting; the agency appealed to me as it has a variety of small and large accounts, interesting and challenging projects, and it is fully set-up to support remote working.

“Being part of a senior team means there is a support network of like-minded people to bounce ideas off and sense check details with.

“The agency is delivering great results to some very happy clients, and I am looking forward to contributing to that success.”

Also joining the team is Gina Dootson, who takes up a senior medical writer role following eight years of medical writing experience.

Previously a freelancer, Dootson’s career has seen her serve at medical communications agency, Transart, where she headed up the writing of global education and learning programmes for the likes of Shire, Takeda and Allergan.

She said: “Being at Makara means I can retain my flexible working pattern with the benefit of a supportive network around me.

“I look forward to working in new ways, in new therapy areas and on a variety of projects as part of a committed and dedicated team.”
