We seek funding to provide a TV health information system in our practice waiting room to display health promotion content , surgery services and signpost patients to local services. For example, we would display content on NHS screening programmes, vaccinations, smoking cessation, contraception, well being clinic, podiatry and carer support.
This information will be targeted at people in our waiting area and we expect it will improve the patient and carer experience, whilst displaying beneficial information to promote health and well-being. This investment may also help to address health inequalities for patients who have difficulties reading or do not have access to the internet. Achieving this goal will require the purchase and installation of a TV and software.
