Positive Impact

The GP waiting room is a quiet, captive environment in which patients are receptive to health, wellbeing and community messaging whilst being mindful of their health and the health of friends and family.

The Life Channel has been recognised as having a positive impact on patients, with any individuals remarking that the network provides useful information, helps to relieve the anxiety of waiting to see a GP and keeps them entertained.

Tailoring Communications

Broadcasting via satellite, The Life Channel can be site-specific, targeting patients with tailored communications.

The adoption of this facility has enabled organizations such as the Department of Health to tailor their campaigns to engage certain demographics. An example of this may be to target areas with a high propensity of ethnic minorities through dubbing programming in their language (with the inclusion of English subtitles).

The Life Channel strives to be as flexible as possible to ensure communication with desired audience groups.
