Company Description

WHAT WE DO

Welcome to Langland. A health communications agency that helps people, brands and businesses think further.

Four disciplines in one

We believe in the power of different perspectives. It's why we have brought together four key health disciplines - Clinical Trial Experience, Medical Strategy & Education, PR & Policy and Advertising. This close collaboration allows our clients have the very best minds in health caring for the most important parts of their business.

Why think further?

When you remain open to working with others, you find answers you wouldn't expect. Our vast experience allows us to pull-in the right people at the right moment. It's why at times we may partner with medics, artists, marketers or policymakers to help you get the best results.

A passion for craft
