Support videos for patients
We have started a trial to give all practices access to an extensive library of support videos that can be used to prescribe information to patients. The library of more than 170 patient information videos covers 33 topics, including: going for a CT scan, inhaler technique, how to walk with crutches, what is pre-diabetes and how to manage it, falls prevention, and pregnancy. The aim is for GPs to use these videos, where appropriate, during a consultation to reduce appointment time and avoid unnecessary follow-up appointments. A number of self-care videos are also available for practices to put on their website, giving advice on such topics as a healthy diet or giving up smoking. The library will be added to on a monthly basis, with content suggested by GPs as being valuable to them and their patients.
For more information, please visit: GP Video Library.
There have been 18 new videos added to the support videos library. These cover a wide variety of topics for example; The NHS flu jab, Dementia, Contraception and STIs and How to measure your peak flow.
