Communiqué Excellence in Communication – Payers and Policymakers, 2016

The judges said:

This well thought through programme sets out the road map to allow it to happen and demonstrated change for something the NHS were doing with clear and tangible outcomes and an air of positivity.”

Communiqué Writing Excellence, 2015, for Saving Lives, Averting Costs for Cancer Research UK

We created a comprehensive economic analysis and supporting materials, bringing to life the health and financial benefits of earlier diagnosis of cancer.

The judges said:

“Extremely well argued and persuasive – this very readable and well-researched piece of work honestly highlighted a problem and generated good coverage. It was clear, logically laid out and was also very effective – being picked up by both media and government. In terms of relevance it was spot on.”

Winning a host of high profile clients, capturing attention through clever, targeted and eye-catching PR and making a series of strong hires, Incisive Health has far exceeded expectations, creating a strong, sustainable and profitable business in less than a year. The consultancy is already delivering big wins for its clients and the health sector is voting with its feet, resulting in a client list which would be the envy of most more established consultancies.”
