Captive Audience

  • Extended Dwell Time:  Patients often spend significant amounts of time in waiting rooms, providing brands with a real opportunity to capture their attention.

  • Undistracted Viewership:  With fewer distractions compared to other environments as people are asked to switch their phones off, advertisements are more likely to be noticed and engaged with.

Trust and Credibility

  • Trusted Environment: Doctors' surgeries are environments where trust is paramount. Advertisements in these settings can benefit from the credibility and trust associated with healthcare providers.

  • Positive Brand Association: Being seen in a trusted NHS healthcare setting can enhance the perception of a brand as caring and responsible – they enjoy perceived endorsement!

  • Brand Support:  Your campaign will also reach healthcare professionals who can become advocates and recommend your product to patients as it is front of mind (often on a sub conscious level)

High Engagement

Patients are often in a mindset to receive and absorb information about their health so we partner with the NHS, making them more receptive to educational and informative advertisements.

Targeted Demographics

  • Specific Audience Segments: Brands can target specific demographics based on the type of patient or clinic (e.g., paediatricians for child-related products, dermatologists for skincare).

  • Regular User Groups: Reach Mums with young children, the elderly aged 60 to 80 yrs and those visiting regularly for check-ups due to long-term medical conditions (diabetes, heart disease, blood pressure, etc)

  • Health-Conscious Consumers: Patients visiting a doctor's surgery are generally more health-conscious, making it a prime spot for health, wellness and pharmaceutical products.

ADVANTAGES OF HEALTHCARE MARKETING

1

Low Competition -

  • Less Advertising Clutter: Compared to traditional media channels like TV, outdoor, the internet or social media, doctors' surgeries typically have fewer competing advertisements, allowing for clearer brand messaging.

  • Good Company:  Your brand will be seen alongside the NHS, leading health related charities, health organisations and well respected pharma companies.

2

Localised Marketing - 

  • Community Connection: Regional businesses can use this opportunity to connect with their local community, run bespoke copy and build a loyal customer base.

  • Tailored Messaging: Advertisements can be customised to address the specific needs and concerns of the local population such as using different languages to reach ethnic groups

  • National Coverage:  Most of our advertisers run nationally across the UK utilising our growing network of high definition screens

3

Improved Recall and Action - 

  • Higher Recall Rates: The unique environment and extended exposure time can lead to higher recall rates of the advertisements as proven by independent brand recall studies.

  • Prompt Action: Patients may be more likely to discuss advertised products or services with their doctors during their visit, leading to immediate consideration and action.

  • Increase Sales:  Around half of the patients go straight to a nearby pharmacy with their prescription or a product recommendation where sales can be measured using Epos data.

4

Diverse Advertising Formats - 

  • Digital Options: Opportunities now include digital screens running full video, catering for various advertising strategies and budgets.

  • Sponsorship Opportunities: Brands can sponsor educational campaigns and provide branded content on relevant subjects offering the patient help and advice which adds value to our service.
