Improving health promotion and communication

Organisation : Craigmillar Medical Group
Grant Amount : £ 1,000

To improve and extend the ways in which we communicate to our patients and carers by purchasing a large plasma display screen for the waiting room .

The waiting room is used by patients waiting for appointments with our multidisciplinary team of GPs, practice nurses, health care assistants and also community staff such at midwives, health vistors, speech therapists and community psychiatric nurses.

The plasma screen displays would be used to inform waiting patients how best to use primary care services and to signpost to other local community services. It would also inform of changes to our services and seasonal campaigns such as flu vaccination, promote health awareness, and educate regarding  appropriate self management of self limiting and long term conditions.
