Healthcare: Co-op's Collister takes ABHI post

The Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) has hired Laura Collister to the role of head of communications and government affairs.

Collister joins the trade body for manufacturers and distributors of medical device technology from the Co-op Group, where she was government relations manager for just over two years.

She effectively replaces former head of communications and public policy Aoife Kilkenny, who quit earlier this year to join Media Strategy (PRWeek, 28 January).

At the ABHI, Collister joins a communications team that includes PR manager Rory Carroll and a publications officer. The ABHI also employs a freelance web editor.

Prior to her position at the Co-op Group, Collister spent a year at the National Consumer Council as public affairs officer.
