Letter - ...but DoH has robust strategy in operation

Contrary to your feature on the NHS crisis, the Department of Health does have a comms strategy, and we are happy to talk about it.

I am sure PRWeek's readers understand the difficulty of evaluating the success of media handling in a hostile climate. But simply rehashing a list of negative headlines does not do justice to the work my team has done to handle events of which we were aware in advance.

I'm confident that the scores of briefings, interviews, letters and good-news stories we put out have made a difference, and will stand us in good stead.

Jon Hibbs, director of news, Department of Health.
