M&F Health, 90TEN and Sanofi among big winners at Communiqué Awards

Full results from health comms awards


A wide range of top-performing health comms agencies, charities and healthcare communicators claimed the honours at last night’s annual Communiqué Awards.

The awards, run every year by PMLive’s parent company Datateam, were once again held at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel to reward the very best work in healthcare communications.

Across 29 award categories, there were 20 winning agencies, charities and individuals, demonstrating that expertise isn’t confined to just a handful of dominant players in the field.

There were a few standout winners, however. Most notable among these was M&F Health, which won no fewer than four award categories for its campaign for UK Malnutrition Awareness Week, on behalf of BAPEN and The Malnutrition Task Force.


M&F: standout winners for their UK Malnutrition Awareness Week campaign

Communiqué judges from the Excellence in Media Relations category lauded the campaign: “The Malnutrition Awareness campaign won because it really demonstrated a very strong public health outcome. The messaging was very bold and really stood out. If scaled up, it hints at the way that healthcare communications could play a really significant role in the sustainability of adult social care.”

Close behind M&F in trophies won were Engine MHP, which triumphed in three categories, including Communiqué Public Affairs and Policy Consultancy of the Year.

Meanwhile two more highly coveted awards were Medical Consultancy of the Year, which went to the Lucid Group, and Communications Consultancy of the Year, which was scooped by 90TEN.


Sanofi: winners of In-House Team of the Year

On the pharma company side, Sanofi was the standout winner of the evening, earning the prize in Excellence in Corporate Reputation for its patient-focused Brexit communications strategy, while also winning In-House Team of the Year.

This year saw the debut of two new co-chairs of the judging, Louise Dunn, communicator and academic at Edge Hill University and Annabelle Sandeman, global head of commercial strategy, Huntsworth.

The new co-chairs had asked Communiqué judges to place particular emphasis on rewarding campaigns which achieved real patient outcomes, and on recognising communications talent.

They commented: “Our congratulations to all who were shortlisted and to the winners who have demonstrated strategic thinking, scientific rigour, creativity, innovation as well as brilliant execution and delivery.”
