We are the leading providers of film and audio health information for patients in the UK

We create a coherent educational journey for a patient, which is both effective and popular.

To make our films, we consult widely with patient groups and voluntary organisations. Diabetes UK, BackCare.org ,The British Lung Foundation and The Alzheimer's Society have all offered valuable help and support regarding content, tone and suggested interviewees. Almost all our experts are nationally or internationally renowned in their field. The material has been peer-reviewed and is both credible and authoritative. It's short, to the point and jargon-free.

We're continually updating our website so keep checking in to see if there's a new film or condition that may be of interest to your patients.
If it's not there please let us know what you'd like to see. We're producing new material all the time.

Our aims:

Conditions covered so far are:

COPD, Diabetes, Back Pain, Weight Loss surgery and Dementia

Please also ask about our series of animated films on Wellness. Health messages don't need to be boring!
