The EP e-prescription Service is a neat and simple online tool which allows Health Professionals – including GPs, Midwives, Obstetricians, Paediatricians and Health Visitors – to select and send relevant courses direct to patients to watch on their mobile phones or at home.
The online courses include all the expert-led EP courses*:

The Child Accident Prevention Trust
The National Literary Trust
The Meningitis Research Trust
Mental Health Specialists
and many more.

The Co-Founders of Essential Parent (EP) are Dr Rebecca Chicot, a Mother-Baby Attachment Expert from Cambridge University, and Diana Hill, a former documentary director from the BBC Science Department.
EP has created a world-class, award-winning selection of online video and written courses covering all the subjects listed above.
Each course is presented by medical experts from that field – so, for example, Professor Robert Winston, one of the founding fathers of IVF presents the Conception Course; the St John Ambulance presents the course on Baby First Aid; and a Breastfeeding Expert and Educator from UNICEF UK Baby Friendly presents the Breastfeeding course – and so on.
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health have approved all the baby care courses and use them to help train junior paediatricians around the world.
Over 100 maternity hospitals in the UK show EP content on their wards.
EP is passionate about helping new parents and babies. We do a great deal of charity work including:
Providing all the visual resources for UK NCT teachers;
Providing DVDs of our baby care courses to Mother & Baby units in UK prisons;
Providing DVDs for all the Barnardo’s Children’s Centres in the UK;
and much more.
