Patient Group Engagement & Support

Ensuring the voice of the patient is central to decision-making and policy via appropriate corporate engagement and direct support.


Helping clients to understand the dynamics of policy environment, and how to develop and deliver their own successful strategic engagement programmes.

Advocate prides itself on the success of our clients and long-term relationships. What we provide will necessarily flex according to client business objectives but our approach is constant:


The healthcare policy environment is complex and continually evolving with multiple dynamics. Advocate takes an evidence based approach to consulting, seeking to comprehensively understand the client business and operating environment before advising.


Client solutions and strategies are never the same requiring a bespoke approach. Advocate draws on multi-disciplinary functions to develop tailored solutions to deliver client objectives.


Advocate has extensive experience of navigating clients through the healthcare policy environment with a highly successful track record. Client teams are appointed based on experience required to implement objectives. Advocate is led by Jamie Holyer.
