Makara Health: Who and why?

Makara Health is an independent healthcare communications agency. Our flexibility, depth of experience and vision mean that we deliver solutions that make a genuine difference, whether it’s explaining complex science to the world, training staff or creating belief-driven change campaigns. Our open and honest approach to developing medical communications consistently produces outstanding outcomes for healthcare professionals, patients and your business.

Makara Health started from a desire to do things differently, to work as a senior team more closely with our clients, and to incorporate the art of psychology into our methodology, to deliver powerful messages designed to create a realistic shift in behaviour.

Makara is a Sanskrit word meaning sea-creature in Hindu mythology. Makara are considered guardians of gateways and the South Asian river dolphin may have contributed to the image of the Makara. Dolphins are highly sociable animals, exhibiting tremendous power output, efficiency and a highly evolved communications system – qualities we have taken for Makara Health. Like the ‘Makara’ we collaborate to guard and grow your reputation.
