They’ve played a huge part in what we’ve built here over the last 29 years, as have our incredible team. I find the ambition of our staff is an endless source of inspiration, and their efforts continue to produce work that defines the sector and shapes better healthcare outcomes.”

We see the benefits of these initiatives everyday in the quality of our output, and the awards tonight further highlight the value of our investment.”

SWITCHED ONcology Patient Experience Focus Group Highlights
On 22nd February we held our patient experience focus group, which brought together patients, doctors and industry advocates to discuss the changing landscape and challenges facing cancer care today. "We are at a time of fundamental change in our understanding around the disease - the way we access it, categorise it and the way we think about it. Has the language kept up? That's the question that I have." Vernon Bainton, Chief Medical Officer, Havas Lynx Group
We bring together the experts. The patients. The scientists. The technologists. The creatives. We unite powerful insights to make science mean something real. We are stronger together. We are Switched ON. Switched ONcology is the latest thought leadership campaign from the award-winning Havas lynx portfolio. The campaign is designed to combine science, creativity and technology in the delivery of communications that better support healthcare professionals, carers and ultimately patients on their journey with cancer. The campaign provides our partners with deeper insight, smarter ideas and more meaningful innovations, born out of an unprecedented investment into oncology.
The Big Communication - matching unprecedented clinical advances in immunotherapy with transformative communication
In this white paper, we explore the exciting new frontier of cancer treatment - immuno-oncology (IO) - and what it means for how we communicate with healthcare professionals, patients and carers. For those on the frontline of treating cancer, IO brings a whole new level of excitement and opportunity, but also unprecedented complexity and uncertainty. And for patients, the practicalities of cancer treatment have changed. In short, the fundamental realities of cancer has changed and communication has never had a more important a role to play.
