Roche's UK communications team was last night recognised at the Communiqué Awards 2014 in London.

The team picked up the Pegasus Award for In-House Team of the Year at the awards, which recognise excellence and best practice in local, European and international healthcare communications.

2013 was a challenging period for Roche in the UK, with a new general manager, leadership team and communications director, as well as constraints on the funding of cancer drugs in the UK and the continued debate on clinical trials transparency, which Roche has been at the centre of.

The in-house communications team continued to deliver excellent outcomes, however, with the Communiqué judges recognising that the winners were “a grown-up, battle hardened team that strives to have their own relations with the media”.

The judges added: “Brave and courageous, at a time when it would have been very easy to keep their heads down, they're always ready for the next fight. Where this outstanding Roche team are is where you want to be.”

Roche beat off strong competition from AbbVie's UK communications team and Astellas' European corporate communications team, both of which were finalists in the category.

The Communiqué Awards are run by PMLiVE publishers PMGroup and the awards ceremony took place at London's Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, on July 3, 2014.
