Health Foundation films – The Power of People
The Health Foundation have launched a series of five films that show the power of people in improving healthcare. Each of the short films can be viewed by clicking on the titles below:
- Pills: Reviewing medication in care homes – telling the story of how the wellbeing of older care home residents is enhanced by making sure they are only prescribed the medicine they really need, and the positive impact this has had on the people who work on the project too.
- Flo: Telehealth with a human touch – shows how Flo, a simple system which uses text messages to support people to manage their own health and wellbeing, can help people in different ways: to manage diabetes, to live with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and to breastfeed.
- Bottoms up: Everyone can influence safety, quality and experience – is about Southern Eastern Health and Social Care Trust (SEHSCT) in Northern Ireland and shows a range of innovative work to make care better and safer for patients.
- Recovery college: From mental health patient to recovery student – features the Severn & Wye Recovery College, which was set up by the 2gether Trust in 2013 to provide a new way to support people living with mental health problems.
- Gold Line: Bringing health care home – highlights the experiences and depth of personal courage shown by people and their families who have been supported by the nurses from Gold Line, a 24/7 telephone service for people , in their last year of life (across Airedale, Wharfedale, Craven and Bradford).
