Having dialysis - patient information video
Patient education video for Guy’s & St Thomas Hospital
The renal unit at this major London hospital needed a video to help patients learn more about the treatment of kidney failure. They commissioned Magneto Films to produce a series of 4 films that would introduce the unit and the care team, explain the various treatments available, and offer insight and advice into the long term care options available.
The films allow new patients to take a look inside the unit, to see where they’ll be having treatment and to meet some of the staff who may be involved in their care. The films also feature patients who use the unit, who share their experiences and offer advice based on practical learning and training in self care, creating a peer education resource.
Supporting the Patient Information Team
The team at Guy’s & St Thomas were relatively new to NHS video production, so they relied on Magneto Films to guide them through the production process and to advise on the most effective way of producing the films. We helped them plan and script each of the 4 videos so that they could ensure all the information was accurate and covered all the topics they required. We also worked with them to coach participants – clinical staff and patients alike – through the filming process, helping them to give relaxed and confident performances.
Working in a busy hospital
The renal unit is a busy part of the hospital, so we had to be extremely flexible with our shooting schedule, planning when we could access the wards and treatment rooms, and liaising with staff for their availability. We were able to complete the films with a minimum of disruption to staff and patients.
The patient information team were delighted with the end product:
“The team were skilled & professional but also flexible and responsive, and we are very pleased with the quality of the end product.”
They have since commissioned us to produce more patient information videos for the hospital.
”These films will hugely benefit our patients and I would definitely recommend Magneto for health related projects.
