PUBLIC SECTOR: Epilepsy society beefs up PR department

After an unsettled six months at the National Society for Epilepsy communications department, chief executive Douglas Bennett is putting the finishing touches to a new PR team. Douglas has brought in Margaret Thomas, special features editor on the Bucks Free Press, as PR manager and appointed Laura Mason, who previously worked for the armed forces radio SSVC, in the new role of PRO. Thomas replaces Jo Lawrence-King, who left three months ago for Glaxo Wellcome. The team will be completed with the appointment of a new director of communications to replace Judith Cranfield, who left in December for personal reasons. The society’s PR agency, Grayling, will continue to provide day-to-day and strategic communications.
