Our Practice

Better health through better communication

Studio Health is a healthcare communications practice based in London delivering projects with global impact. We understand health and specialise in how to improve communication between patients and healthcare professionals.

Our skills and expertise bring the science of communication, health psychology and health literacy to life, through innovative projects that measurably impact patient health.

The first project we delivered in 2009 – launching a speaking book about medicines safety in sub-Saharan Africa – shaped the work we love to do for our clients. It touched our heads and hearts and we’ve been pursuing projects to help people understand health information ever since.

The practice is led by Candida Halton, MSc Health Psychology, Visiting Lecturer and Researcher at University of Westminster. Candida founded Studio Health on the principles of producing evidence-based, expert-led work, in collaboration with leading academics, healthcare practitioners and researchers. Our Understand, Design, Implement, Evaluate approach draws on an unrivalled global network of subject matter experts we’ve built over the last decade. We lead collaborations to deliver meaningful solutions that have a long-term impact.

Understand

All our work is underpinned by rigorous research and evidence-based theories and practices to simplify the complex, drive behaviour change, optimise medicines use and break down barriers to health service, access and use

Design

We execute patient-focused, user-led design principles in our processes that lead to impactful and memorable resources. It’s where the science of communication becomes an art.

Implement

Our team combines exemplary project management skills with extensive experience of the pharmaceutical industry. This means that we’re perfectly placed to bring forward ideas that push boundaries while remaining sensitive to what’s possible for a specialised environment

Evaluate

Evaluating our work shapes and informs healthcare programmes we create for our clients – a cyclical process that is central to our approach. Working with our clients to determine the difference we’ve made, all of our work is measured for its impact.

We have experience in designing and delivering academic research to evaluate how an interventions have effected change.
