Here to help in Different times


People’s health and wellbeing is always our top priority – right now we’re thinking about all of you and hoping you, your families and colleagues are keeping safe, taking care of yourselves and finding ways to adapt to COVID-19 lockdown or isolation.

We’re taking care of our members too. We’re working as normally as we can, whilst embracing the needs of our families and communities. As a virtual team of over 100 consultants, we’re lucky to be well set up to keep working in these challenging times.

Can we help…

…if you’re short-handed?

…if you’ve got extra comms needs?

…if something unexpected happens?

…if you’re planning ahead?

Many of you are trying to maintain business as usual, with major disruption from all kinds of COVID-19 impacts. We are healthcare comms specialists, medical writers, journalists, social media and digital specialists, creative strategists, internal communicators, charity specialists and designers.

We’re all ready and willing to help with anything you need, even if it’s completely different from your usual comms projects. Find out more about exactly how we can help in our open letter to clients.

Meet our Founder, Angie


I want to make a real difference to the healthcare industry with this game-changing service and support model.

For nearly 30 years I’ve worked in healthcare communications, building one of the most successful UK consultancies and growing it to a global entity. In that time I’ve learned what does and doesn’t work well in the traditional consultancy model.

The Difference Collective gives you access to exceptional talent, experience, commitment and productivity for your healthcare communications projects. The Collective is a talent kitemark, guaranteeing to our clients that our consultants are the best of the best. We work flexibly to meet your individual project needs with the right skills exactly when you need them.
