Virgo Health

Virgo Health is an award-winning global healthcare communications and medical education agency comprising specialists with some of the best skills, experience and knowledge in the industry. In 2016, we were awarded the prestigious accolade of Medical Education Consultancy of the Year at the annual Communiqué Awards.

We take the greatest pride in delivering human insight-driven, ground-breaking and award-winning health communications that make a real difference.

Our manifesto is Being real, Being relevant...Being Human.  Why? Because healthcare is an industry with people at its heart. Everything we do through communication is about helping people make better decisions about health and wellbeing. Being Human means communicating in a personalised and authentic way. It means recognising what people really think, believe and do. It means understanding our clients and audiences as individuals. It means working together with conviction, integrity and passion to achieve exceptional results.

Our UK HQ is in Richmond, London, with offices in Central London, New York and China. Through our partner Golin’s network, we can support clients in over 50 markets worldwide. Our approach means we can give our clients the best of all worlds, all over the world. We have expertise in running large-scale global and regional programmes – our team goes beyond borders, fusing world-class know-how with the local low-down.

Our team works across four core divisions and is supported by The Pharmacy, our creative studio. We’re organised around what our clients need. We nurture our people’s expertise and pride ourselves on deep knowledge and creativity in every one of these areas. You can find out more about each of our divisions, and The Pharmacy, under 'Areas of expertise'.

OUR PARTNERS 'GO ALL IN'

In July 2012, Virgo Health became part of Golin and therefore the Inter Public Group's (IPG) network of agencies.

Golin was founded over 50 years ago by a young PR maverick who had spotted a nascent chain of hamburger stands and had a big idea. As courageous as he was innovative, Al Golin placed a cold call to McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc and a client/agency relationship that has endured for more than half a century was born. Since that day Golin’s reputation has been one of an innovator and leader in progressive corporate and consumer communications that ‘Go All In!’
