We explore five inspirational examples of innovation in health care

Our series of five short films – the Power of people – is a unique and moving take on how the lives of people using health services and their families can be improved through the determined efforts of people working in health care. 

The Power of people films present different perspectives on innovative ways to provide care, which have changed the lives of both people receiving care and the people caring for them.

The demands on our health service are growing – the ideas of the people working in the health service will be essential in meeting this challenge. Our short films show the power of what can be achieved when people are given the time and support to innovate. We hope they inspire those already doing great things in the health service to think about what else might be possible.

Four of the projects shown in these films received funding from the Health Foundation.
