Continuously striving to achieve great results and an excellent ROI for our clients, we enjoy collaborating closely with you to offer a wide range of effective services. To date, we have launched products that have become best sellers in under six months.
We have protected market leading brands against attacks that could have posed a serious threat to our clients and their products’ reputations. We have educated HCPs to ensure they prescribe brand name drugs, vis-à-vis cheaper generic alternatives.
Working on tight budgets we have helped a small charity grow into an internationally recognised not-for-profit, with over 50 employees. Using a creative blend of social media and video, we are helping our clients develop brand awareness online.
We also take pride in cultivating strong working relationships with reliable journalists, who help us guarantee excellent coverage, recently allowing us to sell out of tables/tickets for a charity’s launch event in under two days.
Since launching Healthcare Solutions PR almost 20 years ago, Sarah and her team have generated an impressive portfolio of award-winning campaigns in medical and veterinary comms, in addition to providing valuable assistance to patient organisations and pharma start-ups.
Now renamed Dhalion Communications, our new brand not only reflects the changes within our team, but also our new skills and services.
Why ‘Dhalion’ you might well ask? It was chosen because the Dhalion is a Greek mythological bird of healing – we believe that the combination of our new ‘flight of innovation’ logo and the new name, capture the creativity and medical knowledge that we apply to all our campaigns.
Proud of our 18 PR awards, including: 2006 and 2008 Communiqué Winners for Best Patient Association for the Crohn’s and Colitis UK; winners again in 2010 of the Best Patient Healthcare Programme Communiqué and in 2013 winners of the Excellence in Communication of Survey or Market Research Data Communiqué for Crohn’s and Colitis UK, we hope to deliver our signature excellence to your organisation.
“On behalf of Fort Dodge Animal Health I would like to congratulate your team for having achieved so much for our brand over the years. I believe that our overall achievements have been outstanding and that Healthcare Solutions has been an integral part to our success. When it comes to reaching and educating audiences, Healthcare Solutions is unmatched".
"Educating and persuading GPs to change prescribing habits was never going to be an easy task in the conservative and cost-pressured UK market. Healthcare Solutions came with a unique understanding of both the IBD patient and physician. This enabled them to engage with the relatively sceptical and apathetic customer groups in a meaningful way. Their holistic approach and commitment to exceeding joint goals has played a significant role in delivering to patients the therapy that is intended by their gastroenterologist. Healthcare Solutions is considered a key member of the whole Asacol Team and we have enjoyed a long and continued partnership as a result".
"Overcoming the media’s squeamishness in dealing with IBD symptoms to enable CCUK to widen the understanding of the conditions amongst the general public, particularly teachers, lecturers and employers required ingenuity. Healthcare Solutions builds on previous award-winning experience, delivering strong and consistent PR initiatives that have improved audience reach, depth of coverage and most importantly the public's understanding".
"We have had the pleasure of retaining Healthcare Solutions as our international communications and PR agency since 2000. That’s no mean feat as during that time our company name and ownership has changed twice! As market leaders in the field of production animal biosecurity we need a quick-footed agency to provide an effective response for us during major disease outbreaks such as Foot and Mouth disease. Healthcare Solutions not only understands the veterinary and microbiological aspects of our business but they move swiftly, adding value to our brands, notably Virkon S. I am glad to say that educational veterinary and farming articles, biosecurity best practice protocols, creative campaigns, website enhancement and brochure copy writing are all in the Healthcare Solutions PR tool kit".
"The charity has had a successful working partnership with Healthcare Solutions for fifteen years. The numerous award-winning campaigns, creative micro-sites, excellent patient and doctor relationships and valuable media contacts all boosted awareness of these challenging bowel conditions. Thank you Healthcare Solutions"!
"Healthcare Solutions PR has created innovative approaches to promote our ground breaking alfapump in the hepatology arena and beyond. From scientific study support, to excellent SKY and BBC TV coverage for a successfully recovered patient, they also developed our first video-based social media campaign to promote and raise funds for the British Liver Trust. We appreciate their creativity and are delighted with the outcomes".
"Working to develop Media and PR profile for a national membership charity in the health sector over four years with Sarah and her team was inspiring and enjoyable. Her wealth of experience, her complete professionalism, her passion to protect and grow the reputation of the brand - all these attributes led to a trusted working relationship. Sarah brought such energy and such flexibility in terms of lateral thinking that, despite constant shifts in media markets as digital took an increasingly key role, she enabled the organisation to seize opportunities which, in turn, brought national communications awards and higher visibility. This strategic approach to brand development led, in turn, to year on year fundraising growth. From research and development right through to delivery and rigorous feedback, in my view, Sarah offers a PR service "par excellence".
