About Bedrock

Bedrock is a privately-owned communications and healthcare experience research agency group that utilises an absolute audience focus to provide creative solutions for client’s communication needs.

Now consisting of two separate companies; Origins Insights and Bedrock Healthcare Communications, Bedrock Group has grown from a small UK based start-up consultancy in 2011, to an award-winning leading player in health experience research, international strategic medical communications and creative medical education in 2019.

Working in close alliance with national and international healthcare companies to gain a deep understanding of their stakeholders has enabled Bedrock to assist clients to build strong, mutually rewarding relationships with their audiences, whether internal or external, healthcare professional, patient or carer.

This audience focus has also fuelled Bedrock’s drive to create a wide range of stakeholder-centric, innovative programmes, from the development of meaningful scientific stories, to the delivery of engaging awareness programmes. ‘Edutainment’, a pioneering approach which seeks to educate and inform audiences in an engaging and entertaining way has been born from this.

  • Deliver high-quality content for creative medical education and communication projects that is aligned with objectives and meets specification, budget and schedule requirements – always ensuring adherence to agency SOPs and processes plus external regulatory and compliance guidelines
  • Develop in-depth knowledge of therapy area(s)/market/audiences/key messages and input into the development/implementation of strategic communication plans in close collaboration with clients/account teams
  • Act as scientific contact for various aspects of Bedrock’s accounts and liaise with clients, healthcare professionals, external service providers and other external bodies; includes participating at client & KOL meetings to develop written content. Includes taking minutes and producing comprehensive and evaluated meeting reports
