UK— Healthcare market research specialist The Research Partnership has launched a new market access consultancy, The Access Partnership.

Mike Mallinson will be joining the firm at the end of the year to lead The Access Partnership, but in the meantime Rob White (pictured top) takes up the role global director of market access while Shrinivas Rao Mukku (pictured bottom) becomes global director of pricing and reimbursement.

White said: “I am extremely excited about this new opportunity and look forward to taking on this leading position for a global market access consultancy business. I recognise the synergies between market research and market access – this new company means we can offer a truly end-to-end business solution to our clients.”

Mallinson, White and Mukku are all former employees of the market access consultancy arm of rival firm Double Helix, which was sold to McCann Health for a reported £50m earlier this year.
