An audio-visual system for a busy General Practice waiting room to display health promotion and information about local services.

Organisation : NHS Lothian Dr Taylor & Partners
Grant Amount : £ 1,200

We wish to provide an audio-visual presentation in our surgery waiting room, showing patient information, education and demonstration of our practice website.   This is an ideal opportunity whle patients are waiting  to display health promotion materials e.g. bowel screening information.  We have updated our website, and wish to demonstrate to patients how to use our surgery services e.g. ordering a repeat prescription.  We have links to information about various NHS and Partnership Agencies where patients can directly self refer e.g. podiatry, smoking cessation.  Our waiting area also serves the Community Dentist Practice, and various locality services.  An A-V presentation would therefore reach a large number of people.  We feel this investment would benefit our general community, but in particular, people who might not usually read or engage in health promotion written or web materials.
