WA Communications’ specialist health practice, WA Health, has been crowned the PharmaTimes Communications Team of the Year 2017.

At a ceremony and awards dinner last night (09/11), the team beat four other finalists in the NHS competition category at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square.

The PharmaTimes Communications Team of the Year competition assesses communications agencies’ ability to address marketing challenges, and to deliver the best communications strategies and implementation programmes to achieve commercial objectives.

Agencies were invited to put forward teams to face a panel of industry judges for an “on-the-day” pitch challenge, with finalists judged on their ability to think creatively and quickly as a team, measured against their peers.

The finalists for the award were:

  • Hayward Medical Communications
  • Grace Communications
  • Porterhouse Medical
  • WA Communications
  • Pegasus

Speaking after the presentation of the award, Jenny Ousbey, Director and Head of Health, said:

“I am absolutely delighted to be named PharmaTimes Communications Team of the Year. 2017 has been an amazing year for WA Health, and we have achieved a lot in a short time. Winning this important award is a testament to the whole team’s hard work and our commitment to providing top-class advice for our clients. We take pride in our integrated communications offer, underpinned with a serious understanding of the policy and market access challenges our clients often face. We look forward to building on this success, and others, in 2018.”
