NHS Direct
NHS Direct is at the forefront of 24-hour health care - delivering telephone and e-health information services day and night direct to the public. Although the organisation started out in 1997, it has been growing and changing over that time, most noticeably since April 2004.

It is now far more than a telephone health line - NHS Direct has an authoritative health website, and 2004 saw the addition of the NHS Direct digital TV service - one of the largest interactive services in the UK. Over two million people now access NHS Direct every month.
Cancer Bacup
Cancerbackup's mission is to give cancer patients and their families the up-to-date information, practical advice and support they need to reduce the fear and uncertainty of cancer.
Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB)
We are the UK’s leading charity offering information, support and advice to over two million people with sight loss.

Our pioneering work helps anyone with a sight problem – not just with braille and Talking Books, but with imaginative and practical solutions to everyday challenges.
Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID)
RNID is the largest charity working to change the world for the UK’s 9 million deaf and hard of hearing people.

Our vision is a world where deafness and hearing loss are not barriers to opportunity and fulfilment. We aim to achieve this vision by campaigning and lobbying vigorously, by raising awareness of deafness and hearing loss, by providing services and support, and through social, medical and technical research.
