Who we are

Kstorfin Medical Communications Ltd (KMC) is a boutique agency based in Manchester, UK, offering services on a local, national and global level.

KMC comprises a team of:

  • Medical Writers: Specialists in oncology, with a diverse range of experience across other therapy areas
  • Editorial Managers: Extensive scientific and strategic experience
  • Events Managers: Experts in delivering pharmaceutical industry events and adept at navigating the increasingly stringent compliance regulations
  • Creative Designers, Print Production Managers and Digital Programmers: To help bring your projects to life!

All of our KMC team members have a wealth of experience in medical communications and/or the pharmaceutical industry. As such, they understand not only the science, but also the pharmaceutical industry environment and challenges, including regulations and compliance, project timelines, budgets and client expectations. We pride ourselves in providing a high-quality, efficient and cost-effective service that meets your needs and your deadlines.

With a dedicated single point of contact to provide you with updates on all aspects of your projects throughout the process, we effectively become an extension of your team and alleviate the everyday pressures that you face. So whether you need a single abstract or a multi-faceted communications programme, you can be sure that your projects are in safe hands.

 

KMC offers the full range of medical communications services, from medical writing to strategic consultancy and event management.

However, rather than providing a ‘shopping list’ of deliverables, we work with our clients to understand the problems, challenges and unmet needs, in order to identify the optimal solution that also fits within the allocated budget and timeline.

Medical Writing

Medical writing is the core of our business; for that reason, our team comprises only highly experienced medical writers with a proven track record. As such, you can be confident that we will always deliver projects to the highest quality standards. Examples include:

  • Conference abstracts, posters and slide presentations
  • Manuscripts and review articles
  • Materials for advisory boards, satellites and standalone meetings
  • Website content
  • Publication plans
  • Training manuals
  • Educational materials
  • Meeting reports

Strategic Consultancy

As well as medical writing, we also use our in-depth knowledge to provide strategic insights in order to facilitate the development of publication plans, competitor analyses, and strategic and medical tactical plans.

Expert Identification and Engagement

Using our experience across a range of therapy areas, we can work with you to identify and engage with established and emerging experts in your field. We pride ourselves on our professional approach and our ability to develop and maintain good working relationships with experts at all levels.

Meetings & Events

We facilitate the organisation and running of a broad range of meeting types each year, ranging from satellite symposia and standalone meetings, to advisory boards and consensus conferences. We can provide a level of service that meets your needs, ranging from onsite support to full meeting management, including concept, planning, slide development, logistical support and post-meeting follow-up.

 

Who we support

We support a wide range of clients, nationally and globally, in the pharmaceutical industry as well as independent medical institutions and societies. These include:

  • Medical managers/directors
  • Publication managers
  • Brand managers
  • Project managers
  • Physicians

Celgene International Sàrl, Boudry, Switzerland

Angela Corstorphine and her team at KMC have contributed greatly to ESMO’s work on clinical practice guidelines and consensus conferences during the past two years. I have worked with Angela since 2012 and consider her to be a cherished colleague and a natural extension of our team. She and her colleagues at KMC are confident, reliable, results-oriented and very proactive. They treat our projects as their very own. It is a pleasure to work with them and we simply would not be so successful without their help.

KMC was integral in the success of our pre-launch plans in the EU. Their expertise was invaluable. The scope and breadth of their knowledge and capabilities is exceptional! This expertise, combined with their professionalism and can-do attitude, made them partners more than just an agency.

Testimonial

Kim Newhouse
Oncology Specialist,
Celgene Canada

I had the opportunity to work with Angela Corstorphine and her team at Kstorfin Medical Communications‎ for over 3 years while I was a Marketing Manager in Europe. Kstorfin’s strengths lie in key caliber of scientific expertise and credibility of their medical writers which is absolutely critical in a specialized field like Oncology. Angela especially is a great strategic partner and provided thoughtful feedback and challenged my thinking driving me to be better and more confident marketer. In addition, the accounts and operations team are detail-oriented ensuring customer needs are well taken care of before/after meetings so that I could focus on the important matters: strategy, content and strengthening customer relationships. As budget constraints continue to increase and resources become limited in our industry, it is really important to choose the right partner.
