We are an independent social enterprise and receive no core funding or subsidy from government or the NHS.
It is perfectly possible for you to view our films on-line at no cost and we have no way of policing this.
However, our ability to continue to research and publish stories, and run this website, relies on generating revenue from licensing our materials for training and educational purposes and from speaking engagements. We’ve tried to make it cheap and easy for you to buy a licence and in the months to come we’ve going to try to make it even easier.
If you don’t but use the content for institutional education or commercial purposes, it’s rather like illegally downloading music. The difference is that unlike musicians we don’t have Tour T-shirts to sell nor do we do many live gigs!
So, if you use the films regularly then please consider doing “the right thing” and getting the proper licence.
An Organisational / Educational Licence entitles your organisation to 3 copies of all of our current stories on DVDs along with Facilitators Guides for each story. We’ll even give you access to our source materials so that you can embed them in your intranet or e-learning environment if required.
Please complete this order form if you would like to purchase a PATIENTSTORIES Organisational Licence. You will then receive a confirmation of your order which you can use to raise your purchase order. Once we’ve received this we can dispatch your DVDs and you’ll be fully licenced!
If you are only wanting a single copy of a patient story, visit our DVD sales order page.
