Welcome to Combined Television | North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust

Posted on behalf of North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust:

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our very own digital TV channel – Combined TV!

Combined Television (CTV)  is the new digital news and information channel – filmed, edited, and produced by North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust’s Communications and Engagement Team.

Watch the latest edition here

Combined TV is a rolling four-hour show, which will be updated weekly.  You can watch the full show below, and if you click through to watch directly on YouTube, you will see a full listing of all items with individual links to skip directly to that item.

Where can I watch CTV?

CTV is available Onsite, Online, and On Catch-up.

Onsite – We have installed a giant screen in reception at Harplands Hospital which will show CTV from later this week.  We have also purchased media players for each of our Trust community locations, including primary care.  We will be rolling out these media players in a phased implementation over the coming few weeks, so that ALL of our teams can see CTV at their work locations.

Online and On Catch-up – There are two choices for watching CTV online and on catch-up.

Via the CTV dedicated YouTube channel – click here
