Health tech comms: fit for 2022 The UK and its health and care services are heading into period of uncertainty, as the omicron variant of Covid-19 takes hold. But health tech suppliers can look forward to a ‘more normal’ 2022, and they should be thinking now about how their marketing and PR communications can make them ready for whatever’s coming, say Highland Marketing founders Mark and Susan Venables. Highland Marketing Blog Cop26 shows it's time for health tech to act on climate change The NHS has already made a commitment to become the first net zero health and care system in the world. It's time for digital health vendors to think about their role – and to be ready to talk about how they are tackling global heating, says Susan Venables, co-founder and client services director at Highland Marketing.
