LCW makes a strategic move to enhance their healthcare education and service offerings

LCW Medical Communications chief executive officer, Lucy Williams and Kelly Farley, client services director, announce successful acquisition of MediConf UK.

LCW, established in 2015 as a leading provider of innovative medical education and communication solutions, is pleased to announce the successful acquisition of MediConf UK Ltd. This strategic move marks a significant milestone in LCW’s commitment to advancing healthcare education and improving patient outcomes.

LCW’s team of 22 specialists across live and digital events, account and society management, content generation and medical writing, was an ideal match for MediConf – one of the fastest-growing primary care education platforms in the UK, with over 28,000 members. Over the past 15 years, MediConf has organised more than 1,500 events, benefiting over 150,000 attendees. Their commitment to excellence and affordable education aligns perfectly with LCW’s vision.

By combining resources, expertise, and networks, LCW aims to:

  • Expand Reach: MediConf’s extensive network of healthcare professionals will enhance LCW’s reach across the primary care landscape.
  • Diversify Offerings: MediConf’s comprehensive range of courses will be integrated with LCW’s educational disciplines, expanding their curriculum of topics for GP education and CPD updates.
  • Drive Innovation: Collaborating with MediConf will foster innovation in medical education delivery, including online webinar courses.

Lucy Williams, chief executive officer of LCW Medical Communications, expressed enthusiasm about the acquisition: “We are excited to bring the MediConf offering to our expanding range of services. This acquisition is a natural fit for our medical communication services and creates further potential synergies that will benefit not only healthcare professionals, but patients, and the wider medical community.”

Dr John Poyner, founder of MediConf UK Ltd, also commented, “We’re delighted to hand the reins of MediConf to LCW Medical Communications.  We’re confident Lucy’s team will continue to build on the fantastic work our team has accomplished over the last 15 years. We have conviction LCW will continue to provide the same level of service our primary care HCPs have come to trust. We’re also excited to see what MediConf members will be offered under LCW’s portfolio.”
