“To be an agency that delivers genuine value to our clients, healthcare professionals and patients, we must always push ourselves to our creative limits. But it’s not easy to do; there’s always a risk involved in encouraging cautious clients to do things ‘for the first time’. Winning PMEA validates our methods, and gives our team and clients the confidence to work together to genuinely challenge traditional medcomms strategies in search more valuable and innovative solutions. Ultimately, this will mean better, more useful tools for the healthcare professionals and patients who have to educate themselves and make critical decisions every day.”
