Pogson has over a decade of experience in pharmaceutical and healthcare comms, having advised clients on data and regulatory comms, disease awareness campaigns, market access programmes and crisis management.
She worked at Red Door for more than six years, and was at Ketchum before that.
She joins the MHP Health team following recent appointments of health comms specialists Victoria Parker as senior account manager, Laura Anstey as account manager and Sean Parrett as account executive.
Pogson said: "More and more clients are looking for consultants who can marry forensic understanding of the health policy landscape with knowledge of when to engage with media and broader public audiences. I am looking forward to supporting the ongoing integration of these disciplines within the team."
Rachel Rowson, managing director and head of MHP Health, said: "There is an increasing expectation among clients for advisers with a deep understanding of the full communications spectrum."
