The Health Sector
PLMR is a leader in the health sector. The cross-company team of consultants who form our dedicated Health Team have gained decades of sector experience working on the full spectrum of communications support, from public affairs to crisis and reputation management, PR and digital support.
PLMR has extensive experience and insight in the health and social care sector. We’ve worked with everyone from NHS Trusts to household-name pharmaceutical companies; from digital health providers to local care homes. No matter the type of care you provide, the size of your services, or who your target audiences are, our tailored communications services can help you achieve your business objectives.
We offer clients the full spectrum of support needed, from taking a leading position in the national media, or securing local positive media coverage to drive occupancy at a single service, to defending your services against reputationally damaging allegations or media intrusion. We help clients secure planning permission for new or expanded care services, develop their online presence, and engage with key stakeholders at local and national level.
The PLMR team are nationally and internationally recognised as experts in their field, and are regularly invited to speak on healthcare communications at conferences and events. We write regularly for the major trade publications, and have unparalleled relationships with healthcare writers across national and trade media, as well as with Government and regulators.
We come with outstanding references, and are recommended by leading voices in UK health and social care sector, including Care England. That’s why you can rely on our advice and recommendations. Our track record of success includes reforming health regulation, changing NHS recruitment policy, defending providers from the toughest investigative media outlets, and securing billions of pounds of additional funding for the social care sector. Our work in the health and social care sector has been repeatedly recognised by our peers, with national award shortlistings and wins in every year since 2012.
We are delighted to have worked with some of the UK’s leading health and care organisations, including: HC-One, Reckitt Benckiser, Push Doctor, Cancer Research UK, Cygnet Healthcare, Accomplish, Care Management Group, Care UK, and Sunrise Senior Living, among numerous others.
