Campaign overview

Haelan tape is a topical steroid fludroxycortide in tape presentation that delivers a carefully controlled dose to areas affected by recalcitrant dermatoses. The product is some 50 years old and support had always been focused on the secondary care market. Resource had always been the limiting factor in reaching other market areas. 

Research into current practice and product profiling in primary care showed that here healthcare professionals were relatively unaware of the product but could see advantages in its presentation – a key differentiator.

The team produced a simple and highly cost-effective campaign on a restricted budget and the results were excellent.


Highly commended - Medical Devices/Diagnostics


Judges' comments

"A very simple approach with focused strategy that delivered great results for an old product with a simple mode of application differentiator."
