Healthcare tech group enlists WS

Weber Shandwick is to lobby on behalf of a body pushing for greater use of technology in the NHS.

The Medical Technology Group is a coalition of ­patient organisations, res-earch bodies, medical device manufacturers and trade ­associations.

Its members – including The British Vascular Foundation and Heart Research UK – voted to appoint Weber Shandwick after a competitive pitch.

The account team will be led by the agency’s UK public affairs chairman Jon McLeod and its head of healthcare public affairs Tamora Langley.

McLeod said: ‘The work that lies ahead is both fascinating and timely.’
