pictocomm communication with pictures

One for every hospital bedside

… improves patient care


We have used our Easy Read solution to develop PictoComm™.

PictoComm™ is a communications tool developed by CDS and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust in response to the difficulties faced by both patients and healthcare practitioners when communication is or becomes a barrier.

Presented in a book format, PictoComm™ consists of over 100 bespoke illustrations to which patients can point to, to help them communicate their basic needs. The illustrative style ensures that all patients, regardless of their spoken language or ability, are able to receive the best care possible at a time when they will be feeling most vulnerable.
