A bit about us

We’re a highly qualified healthcare communication collective; medical and creative copywriters, strategists, coaches, bloggers, marketeers and project managers.

Between us, we have over 35 years’ experience within healthcare agencies and pharmaceutical companies. This spans European and global healthcare brands across almost all therapeutic areas. 

 

So we understand the challenges of delivering multi-channel campaigns to tight deadlines.

We’re a diverse bunch – amongst us we have Veterinary Surgeons, a former Research Scientist and Microbiologist, an Equine Immunologist and a Workplace Culture Champion. Not to mention the PhDs.
