The National Health and Care Video Library: Update
September 2021 - Important notice from NHSX:
The NHSX contractual agreement with HCI videos for access to this health and care video library has now expired. Access to the library and content is no longer provided by or the responsibility of NHSX. This platform was licensed by NHSX as a temporary response to the COVID-19 pandemic in June 2020. NHSX is carrying out a review to understand the long term future strategy of patient information in the NHS.
HCI is offering a free of charge, 6 month extension until the end of March 2022.
Why we are keeping the Health and Care Video Library live....
'We are delighted with what we have achieved with NHSX through the national Health and Care Video Library and would like keep the momentum going to support clinicians and patients' says Richard Wyatt-Haines, Director of HCI, 'We will keep the service live for a further six months free of charge and during this time will continue to try to find ways to fund the national library on an ongoing basis'.
