Public Relations We are highly
experienced in traditional and innovation public relations activities;
everything from media launches for new data or products to consumer awareness,
mobilisation programmes and issues management.
As an agency
we pride ourselves on having up-to-date UK and global media contacts and strong
working relationships with the media. As a result every team member knows
exactly what story-angle makes the news to generate coverage for our clients.
We have a
rich heritage in patient advocacy, which now totals 40% of our work. We are
particularly proud to have launched European HIV-Hepatitis Testing Week and
Think Again, Think NP-C, which have been independently recognised with industry
awards and, more importantly, improved the lives of thousands of people across
the world. It doesn’t matter if we are working directly with an NGO or on
behalf of pharma or biotech clients, we pride ourselves on delivering engaging,
relevant programmes that are embraced and endorsed by the communities we are
supporting. Medical Education As an
experienced agency with the majority of our team holding science degrees, we
offer award-winning expertise in medical education; from advocacy mapping;
development of peer-reviewed publications; payer, clinician and
multi-professional advisory boards; satellite meetings at medical congresses
and stand-alone CME-accredited educational meetings offering clinical, research
and leadership skills training.
patient access to medicines as the critical challenge in today’s pharma market
environment. Our access capability is at the heart of our communications
offering rather than sitting as a separate directorate, which means that you
work with one core team that understands all the challenges.
We work with
our clients in a variety of ways to generate real-life insight into the issues
being encountered by patients seeking access to innovative medicines. We then work with our clients to develop an
appropriate strategy and practical solutions that educate, create behaviour change
that ultimately benefit the clinical needs of patients.
