Originally published on Campaign.

Manning Gottlieb OMD will continue to manage media planning for NHS Blood and Transplant, following a comprehensive review process.

As the incumbent, the agency said it would continue to work alongside NHSBT to provide media planning services. Its reappointment comes as the NHS recovers from the impact of Covid on its services. MG OMD will be instrumental in bolstering blood and organ donor levels, with marketing activity that places a greater emphasis on reaching donors from BAME groups.

The special health authority focuses on saving and improving lives through public donation and manages the blood donation service in England and transplant services across the UK.

MG OMD’s triumph follows the news from last December that the agency’s OmniGov team had been awarded another four-year contract as the Government Communication Service’s media buyer.
