    MedComms Networking - 09 February 2021


    First off, kudos to Alice Choi (COO, McCann Health Medical Communications), Jane Smith (Director, AMICULUM), Dennis O'Brien (CEO, Lucid Group) and Chris Winchester (CEO, Oxford PharmaGenesis), who joined me for last week's #MedComms Webinar, What is the bright new future for MedComms? And thanks to the sizeable audience who gathered to listen. It was an impressively open and relaxed discussion, I thought. The agencies are successfully adapting to these strange times, and strategies are being in put in place to support their remote-working teams. The work itself is changing. There's more of it, it's more digital and clients want it all faster! Which all led to an overall positive message that the MedComms business is healthy and that recruitment activity levels are high. We're lucky to work in a field where we can say that.

    The recording is freely available to view here, or find it along with 300 more relevant videos at or, of course, in our #MedComms YouTube Channel.

    I guess a regular theme in our webinars now will be hearing different perspectives on the "new normal" and how MedComms is adapting and flourishing. Alice Choi returns next week in her role as Chair of The Healthcare Communications Association (HCA) together with their CEO, Mike Dixon to talk about its role in supporting those of us working in healthcare communications during these disrupted times, and to share their thoughts on the challenges we all face in the coming year. Please join us. Everyone's welcome.

    Looking slightly ahead, on 3 March, senior representatives from Langland, Annette Keith (Head of Editorial), Drew Owen (Chief Scientific Officer) and Diane Ross (Head of Scientific Strategy) will look into the pitfalls of healthcare communication and how medcomms agencies can help the pharmaceutical companies avoid them. In Getting MedComms right: navigating the age of the amateur expert.

    And now, this morning, we've confirmed with Highfield that Su Allen (Scientific Adviser), Amber Fensome (Director), Lindsey Pritchard (Account Director) and Lisa White (Senior Account Director) will join me on 24 March for Insights into medical communications during the COVID pandemic: The independent agency perspective.

    I love the broad range of panellists we're attracting. If you'd like to get involved, let me know. We've plenty of Wednesdays to fill!

    Meanwhile, this Wednesday we'll have an eye out for the wannabe medical writers with Judy Brownsword (Customer Strategy and Chair of Senior Operations Team), Will Wilson (Account Executive), Ciaran Wright (Scientific Director) and Rye Strutt (Regulatory Writer) all of Bioscript. Just what is the difference between MedComms and regulatory writing? Let's try to find out. Everyone's welcome.

    Remember, details of all our activities are kept bang up-to-date at or give me a shout at any time if you've any questions, comments or suggestions.

    P.S I've an online meeting with the New Zealand medical writers (and guests) next Monday 15 February at 10.00 New Zealand Standard time. It'll be a late night for me, but you have to love the technology. Join us if you like.
