What is the Self-Health Kiosk?
The Self-Health Kiosk is a screening kiosk designed to let patients take control of their own health. Patients registered to a GP surgery with a health kiosk can log in and take standard NHS health checks, take vital signs measurements and questionnaires/ assessments for:
- Blood Pressure
- Oral Contraception
The Health Kiosks allow patients to answer health questions from a library of Care Pathways and take vital signs measurements independently of a clinician. The results are then integrated onto the patient record, ready for a clinician to review. The Health Kiosks can take care of blood pressure, height and weight and take patients through different questionnaires so that, when you are with a clinician, this information is already to hand.
There is no need to make an appointment, visit the surgery and use the kiosk whenever its convenient for you. The Self-Health Kiosk can be found in the waiting rooms, in all our surgeries.
