The Royal Society of Medicine and ITN Productions have launched ‘21st Century Healthcare,’ a news and current affairs-style programme which explores the need for a collaborative approach to medicine to encourage new thinking. The programme brings to life the solutions to some prominent healthcare issues.
The four-part programme showcases clinicians, academics and innovators who are shaping the future of healthcare, as well as the array of specialties and educational programmes run by the Royal Society of Medicine. Demonstrating the importance of team-based learning, sharing and creating new knowledge, the programme celebrates success stories from the wider healthcare team.
Presented by national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky, the news-style programme combines key interviews, case studies and sponsored stories from healthcare organisations across the UK and beyond.
The programme also features an interview with Chief Executive of the Royal Society of Medicine, Helen Gordon, who talks about how the education for health care professionals needs to adapt to meet the needs of patient care, as well as sharing information on the RSM’s new partnership with the NHS Clinical Entrepreneur programme.
There are eleven sponsored news-style reports in the programme, featuring the work of Amgen, Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Echo, Heraeus Medical, Northumberland Tyne & Wear NHS Foundation Trust, Norwich Medical School University of East Anglia, Proximie Limited, St George’s University of London, Tissue Regenix Group, University of Liverpool and University of Manchester.
