What does someone who works in Healthcare PR do?

Someone who works in PR can without a doubt say that the list below is not a scrape on the full job description but a typical list of duties on a healthcare role spec might look a little like this:

-/ Ensure good media relations with health editors on relevant publications (newspapers, magazines, trade journals, radio, TV and, increasingly, online.

-/ Write and send press releases.

-/ Work closely alongside the advertising team to ensure the brand message is consistent and the internal brand and comms team to ensure all stakeholders are involved in the process.

-/ Communicate key messages internally so everyone in the company – from the medical sales team to the senior managers – can understand the ‘vision’.

-/ Recruit and brief key opinion leaders, celebrities, authors and spokespeople in the relevant field to share the company’s healthcare message.

-/ Manage issues to protect a client’s reputation – for example, healthcare product recalls or medicine label changes.

 

What skills and qualification does a Healthcare PR specialist need?

Some Health PR roles will require you to have a healthcare or medical degree. Other agencies are much more open to background but love people who have a strong passion for science – there are many people in healthcare PR who entered the profession with a background in sales and marketing or general PR though and it’s not holding them back!

As well as the above, you will definitely need to be:

-/ A very strong and persuasive writer

-/ Creative and brimming with ideas

-/ Self-assured, expressive and versatile enough to pitch plans to a portfolio of different clients

-/ Strategic so you can put together a plan and budget for each idea

-/ Organised – everything’s time-sensitive and you often have to react quickly to client requests so you need to deliver projects on time and maintaining a high standard.

-/ Friendly, with an ability to charm the client so they feel confident enough to trust and share in your vision.
