Orlando Media





We have extensive experience working in healthcare and medicine. In particular, for the past 15 years Mike Tomlinson has been working with the NHS, developing ways to use new digital media to communicate effectively with patients and healthcare professionals. He is an associate of the Department of Health initiative, NHS Elect, working as their consultant creative director and producing media and communications solutions for NHS Elect's members.

Orlando is also experienced in working with advanced medical subjects, such as communicating health science research to specialist medical audiences. We produced a long-running series of video interviews for the European Journal of Cancer, working with medical journalist Helen Saul, and have worked with Oxford Digital Media on a number of their medical projects.

These are a few examples of our work in this field.




Tackling major NHS problems.

NHS Improvement worked with NHS Elect on a series of workshops addressing the problems with ambulance handover at A&E. To begin each workshop they wanted a poignant reminder of the seriousness of the issue. Matthew's story is a video case history of such an event.

Matthew's Story



Communicating NHS strategy and organisational development.

Many projects we have delivered are concerned with explaining changes in the way healthcare is provided to patients and staff. For example, East London NHS Foundation Trust recently introduced a new Care Programme Approach using new IT systems.

Recruiting NHS staff

We have produced videos and other resources, including web microsites, for a number of NHS Trusts who have needed to recruit nursing and medical staff, including George Eliot Hospital in the Midlands.
