Wellness: Sound advice

the Sound Doctor, a supplier of bite-sized films and audio programmes for people with long-term mental and physical health problems, has launched a new service to help employers reduce stress and anxiety in the workplace and improve outcomes for staff with long-term conditions.

Rosie Runciman, co-founder of the Gloucester-based online health educator and NHS supplier, said: “Our films, animations and audio podcasts easily communicate key health information to employees. Evaluations we have conducted show that our videos and audio programmes do change people’s behaviour; they need to visit their doctor less often, spend less time in hospital and are therefore able to spend more time at work.” The new service aims to reduce working days lost through minor illnesses, musculo-skeletal problems and mental health.
