“Message in a Minute”

The ELHT Vascular Team have every right to be proud of our recent “Message in a Minute” videos describing various aspects of clinical care for the five main vascular disease processes that are treated in our Specialist Vascular Unit; Aortic Aneurysms; Cerebrovascular Disease; Peripheral Arterial Disease; Varicose Veins; and Vascular Access in Renal Failure.

With a research interest in lower limb ischaemia, my video explored “Walking Limitations due to Blood Vessel Disease”.

Estelle and the Elm Media Team produced an additional summary video highlighting the quality of care the ELHT vascular service provides – Why Choose CALVES.

“Vascular Investigations”

Feedback from our “Message in a Minute” Video Series suggested that a patient-centred video series actually showing how we investigate certain vascular disease processes could have a major beneficial effect for our patients.

Estelle and the Elm Media Team produced five videos describing various vascular investigations that our patients frequently require and a further video detailing endovascular treatment in our “Angio” (angiography) room. Thanks again to Elm Media.
