Company Profile

Watermeadow Medical is an award-winning, international agency within the United Drug group of companies. As part of one of the biggest healthcare service operations in the world with joint turnover of almost £2 billion, together we serve 19 of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies with representation in 23 countries.

So what makes Watermeadow one of the very best agencies in the business?

1. We have one of the largest and best in-house editorial teams you’ll find
More than 50 in-house expert writers and editors transparently identified and available to clients (we don’t hide behind account managers and avoid using freelancers). Our staff are very highly qualified – 85% of our writers are PhD/MD.

2. We offer full service project teams
Our in-house events, production, digital and design experts complement our editorial staff, allowing us to create flexible, integrated full-service project teams specifically targeting the needs of our clients. And this extends beyond core medical communications too − we have access to large teams of event logistics specialists, market research experts, marketing consultants, sales representatives and training specialists through our partnership with United Drug companies.

3. Value through continuity
We have exceptionally high staff retention (90% in the last 2 years) so our staff build long-lasting relationships with our clients, adding value through continuity. Our clients love this about us – it’s just one of the reasons why more than 50% of our clients have been with us for five years or more.

Together, these features mean that, since we began in 1997, we’ve been delivering projects that exceed expectations, time after time. It’s why more than 90% of our business comes from existing clients and why we’re one of the most successful agencies in the field, with substantial and consistent growth year after year.

So next time you think about selecting a medical communications agency, why not choose one of the best in the industry – one that reaches across multiple continents, industries and capabilities – and one that is structured to focus on you?
