With a strong cultural alignment, HealthCare21’s talent and capability will be instrumental in enhancing our audience reach and engagement, helping transform lives. This brings us ever closer to our vision of changing patients’ lives through communication.”
Cliff Wyatt, HealthCare21 Managing Director commented, “I am delighted that HealthCare21 is joining Lucid Group. With our strongest ever year in 2018, this is a good time for us to capitalise on this momentum, benefit from better infrastructure and additional capabilities like behaviour change and establish ourselves further as partner of choice for our clients. HealthCare21’s focus on great content and innovative digital solutions marries really well with Lucid’s offering.”
