West Yorkshire communications agency Faith PR has been appointed by Thornton & Ross (T&R), one of the country’s largest over the counter pharmaceutical manufacturers, to deliver the UK launch of The Future of Healthcare Report 2019.
The major report, carried out for parent company STADA, is one of the largest studies of its kind and examines how future technologies and trends will shape the healthcare industry, and assesses how the UK compares with the rest of Europe.
The anticipated results will be revealed at an exclusive launch event at T&R’s Huddersfield headquarters later this month – the first time the organisation has opened its doors to the public and media. Visitors will get a glimpse at the manufacturing activities and will be given the opportunity to ask T&R staff, including the Executive Vice President, questions about the findings during the day.
Faith PR will be providing full-service PR, social media and marketing solutions, promoting the T&R project to healthcare professionals on a regional and national level. The account is headed up by Faith’s Managing Director, Stefanie Hopkins, together with Account Director Gill Bowker.
Stefanie commented: “We’re delighted to have been appointed by T&R to promote the UK launch of its Future of Health Report. Adding this business to our portfolio is a real coup for us, as we love working with clients to increase their regular media presence and achieve their ambitions through PR. As a team, we’re very proud to be working with one of the region’s largest firms and especially one which has strong regional heritage.”
Ruth Burns, Director of Corporate Communications & Stakeholder Engagement, T&R, added: “We’re thrilled to be working with Faith PR to announce this critical Health Report. We chose to partner with Stefanie and her team based on the excellent client work they have previously delivered and their consistent reputation within the region.
“We’re excited to share the results of the survey, which promises a valuable insight into the future of healthcare within the UK, now and in the years ahead, and to host the launch at our Huddersfield premises makes the event even more special.”
The event takes place mid-October and is open to healthcare professionals across the country. Roger Scarlett-Smith, Executive Vice President at T&R, and Tim Irfan, Associate Director Marketing Insights at Kantar Health, will present the report.
T&R develops, manufactures and supplies a wide range of branded over-the-counter medicines, dermatological solutions and other healthcare and hygiene products including Zoflora®, Hedrin® and Setlers®. It is part of the German-based STADA Group.
