ABOUT US






Livingstone Medical was founded in 1996 to research, design and publish balanced health information

specifically for patients and consumers- and written in a layman's language


This research later formed the basis for Coventry University's own MA in Health Communication Design

also created for their new Health Design & Technology Institute opened in 2008


Our own health information series 'Diseases Explained' has now been published and distributed in

over 50 countries worldwide - and in almost as many languages


In 2003 our family reference book  'A Patient's Guide to Diseases and Conditions' was first

published in the US by Lexicomp (now part of Wolter Klowers Health)


Our work has been endorsed by both the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation (AAFPF)

and by Case Western Teaching Hospital's Department of Family Practice in the US


It was also certified by the Department of Health's NHS Information Standard here in the UK

and approved by the Family Doctor Association


In addition to research, design and publishing services, the company also provide training sessions on

aspects of health information design to health professionals throughout the UK


Clients include national health services and healthcare organisations, pharmaceutical manufacturers,

patient groups and charities, government health agencies, health communication and publishing companies.
