PUBLIC SECTOR: Diabetic association seeks public affairs aid

The British Diabetic Association is to appoint a public affairs agency to support its work in Northern Ireland. The agency will monitor information services on developments in the Northern Ireland Assembly. This will be one of the final moves made by PR head Mark Flannagan who has spearheaded the charity’s lobbying offensive as the Government prepares to guarantee standards of healthcare for UK diabetes sufferers by spring 2000. Fiona Callison, previously Railtrack corporate relations head, is joining the charity’s Scottish office as a policy/communications officer. Flannagan’s eight-strong team will be boosted by two more public affairs officers over the next two months.
