This video demonstrates the amazing work done by the South Ayrshire Befriending Project.

The South Ayrshire Befriending Project (SABP) is a small locally run charity based in Ayr, which was established in 1996 when the need for a befriending service for young people with social or emotional difficulties within South Ayrshire was identified. SABP also extends to young people with an additional support need or a diagnosed medical condition through their new Buddies Project.

SABP supports around 60 young people each year through the provision of 1:1 befriending and group activities.

The video was sponsored and created by Video3 Productions .We specialise in working with the public and Third Sector organisations.

This month’s Health & Social Care Newsline focuses on the incredible work done by the Scottish Ambulance Service. In this edition we talk to Pauline Howie, Chief Executive of Scottish Ambulance about the service’s hopes and aspirations.

Also , in this edition we chat with Brian Glass, Assistant Head of Education for Scottish Ambulance about the success of their online CPD training and how they have been able to successfully deliver a range of CPD topics to thousands of their staff in an engaging and  economic manner.

Issues with YouTube ?

Posted: September 8, 2016 at 11:03 AM

We’ve been notified by some of our viewers that they are unable to access our Health & Social Care Channel because some IT departments have put restrictions on accessing YouTube.

We have therefore decided to upload all new clips to both YouTube and Vimeo which apparently the vast majority of Public Sector viewers can access.

Here is last month’s Health & Social Care NewsLine

Welcome to the first edition of our monthly video newsletter called Video3 Newsline

Posted: August 25, 2016 at 5:02 PM

In this month’s broadcast we’ll be highlighting the incredible work done by Carers Scotland and explaining the crucial role that carers play in society.

Next we’ll be meeting with Joyce Grey, Development Director with Alzheimer Scotland who’ll be telling us about the important launch of the new Technology Charter which they hope will bring major benefits to people with dementia and their carers.

Finally, if you think that the Scottish Fire and Rescue service only deals with fires and cats up trees you’ll be surprised to learn the important role that they can play in in the Social Care agenda in Scotland

We hope you’ll find our features informative and useful. Please share with colleagues to help spread the message of all the good things that are happening within Scotland’s Health & Social Care agenda.

Its Been A Busy Spring !

Posted: June 21, 2016 at 1:45 PM

There has been a considerable amount of webcast activity over the last few weeks.

We had the pleasure of Streaming  the Scottish Centre for Telehealth & Telecare Learning Event which was held at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh on May 31st. The weather that day was glorious as you’ll see from the interviews that we conducted with the keynote speakers and workshop leaders.

As always at these events we took time to chat with the exhibitors who often help to make these events possible by their contribution.

Of course the highlight of the conference were the five minute “Snapshot” presentations on all topics related to Technology Enabled Care

Just before the SCTT event we were also at Queen Margaret University streaming a fascinating conference on Home Based Memory Rehabilitation. Home Based Memory Rehabilitation (HBMR) is a developing evidence based occupational therapy early intervention for people living with dementia. It aims to help people compensate for any memory difficulties affecting everyday functioning and engagement in occupations. The structured programme is person centred, encouraging new learned behaviours in the early stages of dementia, creating habits and routines which can then be relied upon over time as a self-management approach. This work is aligned to the AHP National Delivery Plan and Scotland’s National Dementia Strategy, supporting the commitment for improved post diagnostic support with the guarantee of 12 months post diagnostic support coordinated by a named Link Worker. The work that was shared at the conference won the Alzheimer Scotland Dementia award 2014 for Best Community Initiative.

As we mentioned before we are seeing an increasing demand for webcasting to deliver online CPD and briefings. NHS Education for Scotland are delivering a series of webcasts on the topic of Authentic Leadership. The last two in the series were streamed on our new multi format platform and have been very well received.

The Scottish Ambulance Service are continuing to use our webcasting service to deliver a series of 10 new CPD sessions for Paramedics after the huge success of the initial trial. Similarly, their Chief Executive , Pauline Howie continues her series of Quarterly Briefings to staff  which always attract record numbers of viewers.

Please don’t forget to visit our new Health & Social Care Integration Channel for lots more video presentations and interviews.

Pick your industry – Reap the benefits

Posted: October 26, 2012 at 2:32 PM

1. Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences

2. Membership Associations

3. Public Sector

Pharmaceutical and Life Science organisations face challenges in the delivery of information to remote employees and stakeholders across huge geographical areas. Research, training, test results and new discoveries, practices and thinking help them stay ahead of the competition and Internet Broadcasting is playing its part in the delivery of:

  • Secure and sensitive information
  • Online conventions with global speakers
  • CPD that’s cost efficient and eco-friendly

Membership Associations are being challenged to provide ever-increasing and more relevant content, training and support to a membership base that is so dispersed that live conferences are almost impossible because of restrictions on people’s time and finances. But Internet Broadcasting is becoming the communication channel of choice as it delivers the tangible benefits of:

  • Driving membership growth through inclusion in the Association’s activities
  • Delivering membership benefits more cost effectively and without additional costs
  • Ensuring continuous professional development and the credibility of the Association
  • Enabling revenue generating stability

Public Sector organisations have a responsibility to engage and communicate with a diverse range of communities, making it difficult to ensure confidentiality while controlling ever increasing costs and, at the same time, ensuring the desired impact of their messages. Internet Broadcasting helps with all of these areas of difficulty by:

  • Allowing the organisation to engage with selected audiences or with large ‘open’ audiences
  • Gaining valuable feedback from delegates
  • Cutting the costs of live events (venues, travel, catering, etc)
  • Maintaining high levels of security and confidentiality

It really doesn’t matter which industry you operate in, Internet Broadcasting will deliver major benefits to your communications strategy, so contact us for an informal chat and we can explore the best package to overcome the challenges you’re facing.

Communication is forever

Posted: October 15, 2012 at 8:00 AM

Communication should be a core activity for any organisation. It’s a key route to success and integrating the organisation’s communications to its products and services.

The objective now needs to focus on achieving first class communications across the barriers of time zones, distance and cost, and in a way that is as ‘natural’ as possible. The mistake many people make is to fall in love with the technology rather than what that technology delivers. Technology changes rapidly but communication is forever. Think message.
