PMLiVE Top 40 Creative Healthcare Agencies



CAN advertising Ltd


Why are there so many mediocre healthcare agencies?
Because the good people leave and start better ones.
Like we did, ten years ago.

  • Agency description
  • We founded CAN because we were frustrated that great clients received awful service and worse creative.  Now we’re in charge and you’re in luck, because you’ve found one of the few agencies who will put you first.

    Nobody talks more tosh than an ad agency.

    Creativity is in our bones’

    Storytelling is in our DNA’

    ‘’Innovation is at our heart’’

    Well, not us.

    Here’s all you need to know about CAN, in as few words as possible.

    We do award winning

    We only do excellent account handling.

    We’re independent because that keeps our thoughts free and our minds open.

    We love ideas, science, art, language and helping human beings.

    We hate all things vanilla.

    We rarely lose clients. In fact, most take us with them from brand to brand and company to company.

    We want you and your brand to succeed.

    Times have changed – we’ll help you change with them.  If you want to know more, we’ve put our best bits (and our phone number) on our website.
