Target Audience

We broadcast exclusive documentaries featuring educational content of benefit to all NHS employees including GPs, Clinicians, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), Hospital Directors, Chief Executives, Department Heads and Specialists.

The documentaries have been written to include leading healthcare and public sector opinion leaders and key corporate players (products and services suppliers to the health and public sectors) to offer advice and guide on practical day to day operations.


Sample Case Study: Smith & Nephew (5min)

The Case Study is included as editorial in the 30-minute documentary ‘The Orthopaedic Revolution’. This is not an advertisement as the content is educational and informative about a new procedure being used in Orthopaedics. The content is written, filmed and edited in a documentary style which seamlessly slots into the main documentary but can also be used on its own by Smith & Nephew (ie. Conferences, Meetings, Websites etc).

You can view the Case Study (5 minutes) below:
