Deadline Digital, based at Barnsley Digital Media Centre, has produced videos with infection control nurses showing how to ‘don and doff’ - put on and, crucially, take off - PPE gear to ensure maximum protection.
The business has also worked with respiratory consultants demonstrating how to set up and operate new ventilators.
And it has produced video guides to relaxation techniques with NHS psychologists.
Deadline Digital managing director Geoff Fox said: “We contacted our NHS and public health clients across Yorkshire at the start of the coronavirus outbreak and asked if there is anything we could do to help.
“If these videos play a small part in informing, supporting and reassuring our dedicated key workers at this time, then we are pleased to have made a small contribution to their amazing efforts. It has been a privilege to be involved.”
Geoff says the ‘highest standards’ of infection control were observed while filming. One person, rather than two, worked on each shoot, long boom arms, wireless mics, personal protection gear and antibacterial wipes were employed throughout. Patient areas were not used.
Deadline Digital editors then worked – from home - around the clock to produce, amend and sign-off the videos to ensure they could be put to use as quickly as possible, he added.
