We are adept at devising social media campaigns that communicate truthfully to stakeholders, while adhering to internal and external prevailing rules and regulations governing the publicity of drugs and medical devices.
Congratulations to our Founder and Regional Account Director for being conferred the Spirit of Enterprise Award 2022! Established in 2002, the SOE is probably the only entrepreneurial award in Singapore organised by a non-profit organisation, where awardees are selected through a thorough interview process, and not by how much they could spend to win.
Bridges M&C are finalists for the PRAwards 2023 in two categories, Best PR Campaign: B2B and Best PR Campaign: Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals. The PRAwards is presented by MARKETING-INTERACTIVE for PR practitioners to recognise outstanding work in the PR and communications industry across Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Oceania regions, encompassing 42 categories that reflect the diverse industry verticals and disciplines across the public relations spectrum.

"I have worked with Bridges M&C as a key opinion leader (KOL) for several medical aesthetics brands now. When generating media coverage, they strike the delicate balance between meeting our objectives as KOLs, as well as those of the brands they work for, all while ensuring we abide by the guidelines established by the local health authorities."
Dr Hew Yin Keat
Aesthetic Physician and founder, The M∙A∙C∙ Clinic, Founding member of Malaysian Society of Aesthetic Medicine (MSAM)
"Whenever a pharma company engages me as a KOL for their campaigns, I often ask if they are working with Bridges M&C. Established in the medical and healthcare industry in Singapore and across the region, Bridges M&C do more than just media relations and often introduce me to connections who can add value to my practice."
Dr Ben Ng
Arden Endocrinology Specialist Clinic.
"Bridges M&C are knowledgeable and well informed of the latest developments in various therapeutic areas and they regularly research and compose my email interviews with B2B or mainstream media. Communicating medical information to the public is difficult as one has to balance the need to inform with the conscious desire to not create fear. As Bridges M&C speak the same language as us, capturing key aspects of diseases awareness and translating them into meaningful media coverage is often a breeze with them.”
Dr Sriram Narayanan
Senior Consultant Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon,
The Harley Street Heart & Vascular Centre, Gleneagles Hospital

Our team is as adept at generating technical articles for the trade media read by healthcare professionals as we are at making complex medical topics understandable and relevant for the general public reading consumer media.
