Health Communications' Council (HCC)

Philip Chin
Langland, Publicis Health
Chief Executive
United Kingdom


The Health Communications Council helps to meet the demands of a healthcare community that is increasingly global in its needs and outlook. Patients, practitioners, administrators, governments and, not least, the pharmaceutical industry, all increasingly look beyond national boundaries for solutions to the healthcare issues that face our society.

The Council was established to bring together European network agencies focused on healthcare advertising and communications, to share best practice and collectively discuss and promote business issues common to all.

The Council currently has ongoing workstreams looking at agencies' role and relationship with pharma procurement departments; best practice in pitching; valuing and promoting creativity in pharma marketing and encouraging and promoting talent in the pharma comms industry.
For more information on any of these initiatives, contact Tamara Daltroff at
