Makara Health

Award winning healthcare communications agency

Our purpose

Makara Health was established to bring together experienced healthcare communicators, working in senior teams, employing an agile working model to deliver…



What if…

A small question that makes a big difference.

Using our INSPIRE planning model we repeatedly ask What If to explore what might be possible for our clients if we look beyond current boundaries and limitations. 

We seek out the beliefs that underpin audience behaviour, to create the right environment for change.

Our team

Agility is built into Makara’s DNA. Our offices in a historic building in picturesque Salisbury provide a coordinating function that enables account-handling staff and medical writers to work from a location of choice. We employ senior talent from across the UK and beyond, all with at least a decade’s experience.


Our clients have daily access to an experienced team providing a strategic dimension to tactical delivery.
