What professionals say

Testimonial
"The whole thing has a very positive and upbeat feel to it, which is just what is needed. I think it is an excellent resource."
Simon O’Neill , Director of Care, Information and Advocacy Services, Diabetes UK
Testimonial
"This is the best set of films, giving honest advice, that I have ever seen. If you are suffering from back pain it is really a must watch video collection highlighting the best treatment and management for all. Down to earth advice on medication, the many therapies available and when surgery might be indicated."
Chairman of the largest back pain charity Backcare, Dr Brian Hammond
Testimonial
"Like many of the best uses of technology, the Sound Doctor is both simple and effective. It gives patients easy access to practical information so they can better understand and manage their own health conditions."
Prof Mike Morgan, Respiratory National Clinical Lead, Vice President of the British Lung Foundation
Testimonial
"It’s vitally important people with dementia and their families have access to information and support after a diagnosis. This is crucial to helping people come to terms with the condition, maintain independence and plan for a future they hadn’t envisaged. This comprehensive set of films looks at dementia from a number of angles – from explaining the early symptoms to practical advice once you’ve been diagnosed. With input from people living with the condition, carers, clinicians and other experts in the field they are an excellent resource for patients and families."
Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive of Alzheimer’s Society
Testimonial
"Improving the care of people with dementia and providing support for their carers is a national priority. Providing information about dementia in an accessible form is a key component for this. The suite of resources developed by the Sound Doctor is an excellent example of how this information can be disseminated."
Professor Alistair Burns, National Clinical Director for Dementia, NHS England
Testimonial
"It is really useful and sign posts patients to support and that is important. In terms of usability it’s easy and straightforward. We incorporate TSD into the chronic disease template so it prompts the nurses to hand them out during the reviews. Nurses like it – and saves them time."
Wendy, Practice Manager, Burbage Surgery
Testimonial
"Patients seem to really like it. The Diabetic and COPD nurses like it and find it a useful tool. We have found it user friendly."
Helen Basnett, Practice Manager, Newbold Verdon & Market Bosworth
Testimonial
"The quality of the product is, in my experience, unmatched anywhere in the world."
Dr Charles Alessi, Senior Advisor Public Health England
Testimonial
"Sound Doctor is the current optimum IT support programme for enhancing patient empowerment and understanding of their long term condition. It has the potential to become pivotal for the improvement of self care for patients as an integral part of care pathway redesign. By providing patients with detailed, accessible and easily comprehensible online information, the overall management of their illness becomes more effective and efficient."
Dr James Kingsland is a Wirral GP and President of the National Association of Primary Care
Testimonial
"The videos are clear and will be a fantastic resource for patients and their medical professionals. It will also be a useful resource for carers and close friends and family who might want to know more about the condition."
Mike Knapton, Associate Medical Director, British Heart Foundation
