The TV production company behind last year’s the “Big Life Fix” programme is planning a new series, in which it wants to create a tailor-made invention that would aid the nursing profession.
Producers want nurses with practical problems that could potentially be solved by its team of scientists and innovators to get in contact.
“We wondered whether there was anything our team could design to help people in the nursing profession”
Studio Lambert is currently producing the second series of the hit BBC Two show The Big Life Fix with Simon Reeve.
The science-based series sees a skilled team of scientists, engineers and designers create bespoke technology for individuals and groups to hopefully transform their lives for the better.
During the first series, the programme’s team created a device to counter the effects of Parkinson’s disease for a young graphic designer and built a bicycle for a boy born with no hands or feet.
Ellie Priestman, an assistant producer with the company, which also makes hit show Gogglebox, has now contacted Nursing Times for help with a next series of the programme.
She said: “We’re now planning a second series and looking for more people who feel they could benefit from a tailor-made invention and we wondered whether there was anything our team could design to help people in the nursing profession.
“Whether that’s inventing something to help improve patient’s care or comfort in hospital or designing something that could benefit the nurses themselves – such as a gadget to make the job a little easier,” she said.
M Priestman called on nurses who potentially wanted to take part in the programme to get in contact. “Essentially, if there’s anything you wish existed then do get in touch and our team to let us know what it is,” she said.
“If selected, our team will work with them to tackle their problem or challenge using ingenious design and technology,” said Ms Priestman. “All calls are treated in the strictest of confidence.”
