The Sound Doctor is an online library of more than 200 short films to help people and their carers look after themselves better by finding out more about their particular condition/conditions.
The films fall within these six categories:
- Heart failure
- Back pain
- Weight management surgery
You can access the videos via the www.livewellcampaign.co.uk - a website developed by Essex County Council to be a local guide to health and wellbeing in Essex.
The Sound Doctor was founded by two former BBC broadcasters who have produced the health videos by interviewing experts in their fields and consulting with patient groups and voluntary organisations. All the material follows NICE guidelines.
