Public Relations & Marketing
Ensuring that your messages are conveyed to internal and external audiences without distortion requires successful public and media relations. GBCPR provide the following services:
Public affairs and stakeholder relations
Recognising the need to engage effectively with key stakeholders (such as staff, community groups and government departments) is now seen as a prerequisite for successful health and social care organisations. GBCPR can devise imaginative and cost-effective solutions to engage with those who are interested in, and may have an impact on, your organisation including public agencies and policy makers at Westminster and local government level.
Producing an engaging online prescence, annual reports and brochures is an increasingly important part of communicating within the health and social care sectors. Aside from the technical expertise required, developing these important tools needs project management skills, skills that GBCPR can provide. The consultancy’s proven track record in these areas will ensure that complex information is presented in plain English, with attention given to content provision in other languages and formats where necessary.
