Barts NHS Trust, Kidney Disease: Your Questions Answered
Produced, Directed and Filmed for Canvas Films.
In collaboration with Barts Health NHS Trust, the Royal London Hospital’s Renal Department, commissioned Canvas Films to produce a series five informational films about kidney failure.
The documentary-style films used patient-led interviews to explore themes such as the various different methods of dialysis, and what happens after kidney failure is diagnosed.
Each film features the story of current patients, who have first-hand experience of living with renal disease. The aim of the films was to give practical, peer-to-peer advice about kidney failure and where to find support, both from medical professionals and other patients. We worked with the hospital’s Patient Forum, which led to the films having a deliberately informal and un-medicalised tone, as patient feedback suggested this is what would be most useful.
