Davies and Gorton, along with Sarah Ghabina who joined in 2016 from the NHS Confederation, will form a leadership team reporting to Frances Beves, director of healthcare communications.

Beves said: “We continue to look for people with an entrepreneurial spirit who understand the complexities of today’s healthcare environment and are committed to delivering thoughtful, creative and high-quality work.”

At Tonic Life, Davies led both UK media relations accounts and international product communications accounts, and specialised in oncology and neurology. Prior to Tonic Life, Davies held corporate communications roles at both AstraZeneca and the BBC, and led the Campaigns and Digital Engagement team at the Royal College of Nursing.

Gorton spent over five years at Ogilvy Healthworld working on pre- and post-launch global product communications and behaviour change initiatives for leading pharmaceutical clients. She has worked in therapy areas including oncology, rheumatoid arthritis, respiratory health, transplantation, infectious disease and diabetes.

On 20 January 2017,  Anna Korving was announced as chair of Hanover Health.
