Nesta

 

Following the success of our first collaboration, we teamed up with Nesta once more.

This time, we produced a film for the launch of their Health Lab, a major new initiative whose sole purpose is to create a country wide People Powered Health system across the country.

The Idea

With funding from Nesta, Stockport District council founded People Powered Health, an scheme focussed on those with multiple health problems and mental health issues. The project provides the best care possible beyond the hospital environment, its emphasis based on empowering patients to take control of their own treatment as they return home, ultimately reducing rates of readmission in an ageing population.

The Shoot

Shot predominantly in and around Stockport, this intimate documentary follows Dan and Mark and their life post hospital care. We observed how Stockport District council, Mind, and the Marple Clinic are helping them, both physically and mentally. Finally, we see this success being taken further, with the successful implementation of a project in Essex.

The Outcome

The film premiered at Nesta in July 2015 with an audience of government officials, case study workers and volunteers. The aim is for the film to not only highlight the work of the programme but also recognise that this is the tip of the iceberg for patient centred care and after care.
