Stories are gathered and shared by journalists and video producers around the country. So what’s different about Stories for Health?
- Specialism We’re health communication consultants. We use comms skills but health is what we do all day, every day.
- Passion Our work is driven by a passionate commitment to person-centred care, health quality improvement and positive patient experience. That means when it comes to health, we’re spot-on in tone, values and language.
- Skill Combining ethnography, journalism and active listening, we have extensive experience in interviewing people from all walks of life, including people who are unwell or have cognitive or other impairments.
- Empathy Agreeing to be interviewed can take courage, and for us it is a privilege to hear people’s stories. We develop a strong rapport, gently helping people to open up and explore what matters most to them. Our interviews respect people’s individuality and dignity.
- Experience We have been working with leading health and social care organisations for 20 years. We understand challenges of working in this sector.
Stories for Health is the work of health communications consultant Eleanor Stanley, with collaboration from other freelance creatives in the field.
