About us

We are a team of more than 70 healthcare specialists with a passion for excellence and a focus on building the agency of the future. We’re passionate about helping people to make better decisions about health and wellbeing. Whether it’s clinicians selecting the best treatment, patients understanding their disease better or empowering consumers to self-treat.

OUR EXPERTISE

OUR HISTORY

For over 15 years, we have grown a business we love, built on exceptional people and a focus on our Being Human culture. In the last years we have been part of the Golin Group and IPG network, which enables our agency to leverage everything you’d expect from a large agency, while keeping our own boutique spirit and personality.
