British Geriatrics Society calls in Onyx Health

The British Geriatrics Society (BGS) has appointed healthcare specialist Onyx Health to advise on comms strategy.

The BGS, the body for doctors who specialise in treating over-65s, has never previously used a PR agency, and is using Onyx to undertake ‘an external scoping exercise'.

The Whitehall-based outfit is working on a project basis, advising on how the BGS can campaign for improved medical care.

Separately, eight-strong Onyx this month hired Jane Wrenn as a senior associate.

Wrenn's most recent role was at Weber Shandwick, where she worked for five years. At Onyx she is working on the three-year-old agency's accounts with Teva/Lundbeck (UK account for Parkinson's disease product Azilect) and Cephalon (UK account for breakthrough cancer pain product Actiq). She also has new-business responsibilities.

She reports to partners Karen Winterhalter and Penelope Wright. Winter­halter, Wright and Wrenn all previously worked together at Weber Shandwick.
