Maxwellia works with 11 London for social promotion of first ever OTC contraceptive pill

We’re excited to announce that we are now working with pioneering British pharma company Maxwellia to help launch Lovima®, a contraceptive pill to be available in pharmacies without the need for a doctor’s prescription – for the first time in UK history.

We’re excited to announce that we are now working with pioneering British pharma company Maxwellia to help launch Lovima®, a contraceptive pill to be available in pharmacies without the need for a doctor’s prescription – for the first time in UK history.

We’ll be responsible for building a social media following across a range of social platforms, and demonstrating how Lovima® can make a huge difference to women’s lives.

This reclassification of the daily progestogen-only pill is one of the biggest revolutions in women's health in the 60 years since the pill was first launched in the UK[1], finally putting more women even more in charge of their daily contraception by widening access.

The licence was granted on 8th July 2021 following a three-week public consultation triggered by a reclassification request spearheaded by Maxwellia. The move has been welcomed by women's health organisations including the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) which have been campaigning tirelessly to make the progestogen-only pill available without prescription.[2][3]

Matthew Hunt, MD of 11 London, said: ‘It’s about time that women can get the pill through pharmacists. It means they don’t have to go to the doctor – which makes sense as they’re not ill – and that in turn takes the pressure off GPs. From a creative point of view there’s a lot to say, and these breakthroughs don’t come along often so we’re thrilled to be working on the account’.

Lovima® will be available from UK pharmacies including Superdrug and Lloyds, from the end of July at a retail price of around £10 per month.

Who cares… about great healthcare creative?
Prestigious awards for healthcare communications tend to be dominated by the big network agencies and their offshoots. And the work deserves the wins. Imaginative, innovative, powerful, arresting – it’s all of that. But is it inspiring the rest of us to emulate these creative heights? And if not, why not?

‘Funny’, ha ha: how neurodiverse comedy can help us understand each other
Ever since Hans Asperger showed cartoons to his ‘little professors’ and they didn’t laugh, it was believed that people with autism lacked a sense of humour. Today, a new wave of ‘neuro-funky’ comedians are busting myths, shining a light on their reality, and challenging us all to communicate in ways that make everyone feel included.

The imperfect art of sustainable communications
Scanning the papers this last week, we’ve seen a welcome departure from wall-to-wall gloom –and very real signs of ‘Reasons To Be Cheerful’.The economy, we’re told, might not be such a basket case after all: in fact, we should be looking at a recovery later this year. Whilst we might have been dubbed ‘Plague Island’ by some, we’re now –thanks to the vaccines – more of a speedboat than a tanker. And with the UK stepping up as G7 president this year, hosting COP26 in November, and being the fastest country in the G20 to decarbonise its economy since 2000, all eyes are on us - for the right reasons.

Migraine-friendly colours for the home
You may not realise it, but colour impacts migraines. 11 London worked with Teva Pharmaceuticals UK, Dulux Paints and the National Migraine Centre to test this theory among 1,200 migraine sufferers and the results were amazingly consistent.
