Patient Information DVD
Prof P N Haray
Prince Charles Hospital
This unique interactive DVD was first commissioned in 2008 by Prof P N Haray at Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales. This project involved creating an interactive DVD covering all aspects of the colorectal cancer patient’s journey from first appointment at the outpatient clinic, through all the investigative and treatment areas to the final follow up stages.
This project involved direct interaction with patients, carers and staff across a wide range of departments around the hospital. The film shooting was completed in a record 4 days with minimal disruption to the smooth running of the various departments. Extensive editing followed over the next several months resulting in a final product that has proven to be of great use in the management of patients in the colorectal unit. Patient/carer surveys have shown near 100% complete satisfaction with this unique product.
This product has also won national acclaim by winning the Patient Experience Network – UK Award for 2010 and the NHS Wales Award 2011, apart from various local and regional accolades.
