British Thoracic Society in partnership with ITN Business – ‘Lungs Matter’
The British Thoracic Society (BTS) aims to improve standards of care for people who have respiratory diseases and to support and develop clinicians who provide that care. In 2022 BTS partnered with ITN Business to produce “Lungs Matter”,- a series of short news programmes designed to raise awareness of respiratory disease.

In total, “Lungs Matter” featured 12 different films, creating 60 minutes of brand-new content on respiratory medicine. The film series launched at the BTS Winter Meeting in November, and by January 2023, had gained 556,306 views, and high engagement across social media, including 439,754 impressions on Facebook.
The partnership helped highlight new innovations like the use of Artificial Intelligence to detect early-stage Lung Cancer. it also showed how changes in policy could prevent air pollution and health inequalities. It helped BTS reach new audiences in a creative and engaging way, and it gave respiratory patients a voice, showing the impact that struggling for breath has on their day-to-day lives.

The CIPD and Wonderly
Haymarket Business Media has been the preferred media partner of the CIPD for more than 10 years – a length of time after which many relationships can lack a little fizz. And yet, the past 12 months has been the most energetic, productive and lucrative in our partnership, with new channels, ideas and revenue streams resulting from a strategic shift that seeks to answer the question: how does a membership association increase its reach and relevance in an age when media has become highly fragmented? It is a challenge Haymarket and the CIPD have worked on together since 2020, when we first came together to examine how our partnership could be further sustained and developed for the benefit of members. We have created more routes to market for the essential content that we produce, without having to rely on any additional investment. We’ve also seen strong revenue results across multiple channels, including events in a post pandemic world that has seen many markets suffer.
