Health Communications Council


Working in healthcare is emotionally rewarding, creatively challenging and, ultimately, transformative. The same is true for those of us working in health communications.

To be truly effective in playing our part in transforming lives, we need to own our narrative through drawing upon our specialism in health, years of expertise and our creativity, we can achieve our shared goals.

The EACA Health Communications Council provides a forum for members to share common challenges and to widen perspectives about how to to make the industry more attractive for talent and business as a whole. ‘A problem shared is a problem halved’ is very evident through the interactions members have throughout the year.
