The Hip Unit, a Centre of Excellence
The Circle Bath Hip Unit in Peasedown St. John, just South of Bath is a leading centre of excellence for hip surgery in the UK.
Circle Bath is part of the leading Circle private hospital chain. Conducting all forms of elective surgery the hospitals are built round centres of excellence in specialist areas. The Circle Bath Hip Unit comprises 6 consultants, working closely with physiotherapists, dedicated theatre staff and specialist nurses to provide a unified, specialist service. The patient journey is second to none and the Circle accelerated recovery process means patients often leave hospital within two days of having a hip replaced.
The Hip Unit film introduces potential patients to the team, allowing them to see some of the staff who will care for them and get a better feel for how they will be looked after. A key for anyone going to hospital is fear of the unknown. Our film is a mini-documentary that lets the whole spectrum of medical staff explain what goes on.
Halo Films specialises in the medical sector, founder Peter Georgi spent ten years working in the Science Department of the BBC making many hospital based shows. He was part of the multi BAFTA winning team behind the Human Body, a landmark series presented by Lord Robert Winston. At Halo we have built on that experience and can work effectively and with discretion on wards and in operating theatres to make films that truly help people understand what to expect from their hospital stay.
