We arrange a photocall with you at a mutually convenient time to photograph your presenters, studio, patients, hospital facilities, fun days. Whatever you want to appear in your magazine.


Who has editorial control?

The editorial content is entirely up to you.
We are happy to introduce extra material of a general nature (quizzes, spot the difference, etc) to supplement your own at your request.
We can provide an editorial service free of charge if required. We have experienced journalists and copywriters available who can assist your staff with the preparation or correcting of material.
