A not-for-profit organisation, with membership comprising in-house teams, agencies, not-for-profits and individuals working in national and global healthcare communications across diverse business sectors, the HCA provides the collective voice to establish, maintain and improve best practice and quality standards in our speciality. The HCA takes the leading role in providing education and shared learning, helping organisations and individuals develop their professional skills. With cross-industry membership, the HCA also aims to provide unique business intelligence and networking opportunities for its members.

Our membership is made up of manufacturers, agencies, third sector organisations and individuals that operate in the healthcare communications arena and we all agree to abide by our Code of Conduct.

Strategic Direction

The Executive Committee acts as a steering group for the HCA and is made up of communications professionals who work both in agencies and within industry. We believe that this gives us a good balance to ensure that we are representing the needs of our members, as well as giving us a good insight into current thinking, tracking trends and ensuring that we have a view on the most pertinent issues.
