MSD Communications and Public Engagement Network
The Medical Sciences Division Communication and Public Engagement Network (formally MSD Communications Network) was set up in early 2013 to provide an environment where members can share information and ideas, help promote each other’s work, avoid duplication, and importantly, know who else ‘exists’ out there! The network has over 100 members, most of whom are staff from across the division working in communications and/or public engagement in one way or another (e.g. communication/PE officers, DAs/PAs with communications in their remit etc.). The network also includes a few external members (e.g. related-NHS, charity communications staff etc.). The network hosts a number of meetings, training and network opportunities each year and manages a mailing list.
To join the network, please email the Head of Communications Alison Brindle.
