Company Description

WHAT WE DO
Welcome to Langland. A health communications agency that helps people, brands and businesses think further.

Four disciplines in one
We believe in the power of different perspectives. It’s why we have brought together four key health disciplines – Clinical Trial Experience, Medical Strategy & Education, PR & Policy and Advertising. This close collaboration allows our clients have the very best minds in health caring for the most important parts of their business. 

 Why think further?

When you’re open to other people’s ideas, you find answers you wouldn’t expect. Our vast experience allows us to pull in the right people at the right moment. It’s why at times we may partner with medics, artists, marketeers or policymakers to help you get the best results.

A passion for craft
Having expert thinking is only part of our story. To ensure excellence in everything we make, we have centred our disciplines around three essential crafts: science, strategy and creativity. 
•            Science – everything we say is medically sound 
•            Strategy – everything we do is well thought out 
•            Creativity – everything we make is truly memorable
