Back On The Big Screen

Staff have once more been able to view themselves on the big screen outside Forth Valley Royal Hospital as part of a 50 minute film showcasing health messages and wellbeing. Their appearance on what is known as the ‘Wall of Wellbeing’ – a space measuring almost 40ft by 30ft on an exterior wall of the hospital – highlights the excellent work carried out by the winners of the recent NHS Forth Valley Staff Awards.

Showings have been taking place from dusk until 8.00pm. The film, which is on a continuous loop, also features stills and video clips, including an interview with Sir Alex Ferguson chatting to NHS Forth Valley Employee Director Tom Hart.

NHS Forth Valley’s Charitable Arts and Wellbeing Coordinator Babs McCool, who worked with a production company to produce and edit the film, said: “This wall space has tremendous potential for all kinds of digital projects and messages. It’s great that we are able to deliver health information in a novel way to the local staff, visitors and patients. It is really exciting and we know that the viewing last year was a huge success. Many people commented on how much they had enjoyed it, particularly if they were waiting at nearby bus-stops.”

The initiative is a partnership between NHS Forth Valley’s Arts and Wellbeing programme, Health Promotion service and Artlink Central.
