In conjunction with Essex County Council, the North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group are supporting the launch of ‘The Sound Doctor’, a new web based library of 300 film and audio patient information videos designed to help people understand more about some of the long term conditions which is now freely available to north east Essex residents.
These videos are aimed at those living with or caring for someone with COPD, diabetes, dementia, heart failure, back pain. There are also videos for those considering weight management surgery.
The sound doctor videos are full of information people often wished they had remembered from their GP appointments or that they just forgot to ask, and may help to avoid additional visits to the doctor. They provide access to expert advice at home, in peoples own time whenever it suits them.
If you or your family would like to access this large film library, please visit www.livewellcampaign.co.uk/sounddr select your surgery and pop in your postcode- that’s all you have to do!
