New plasma screens for NHS Lanarkshire 

New plasma screens show key information to public and staff 

One of the new plasma screens shown at Douglas Street Community Health Clinic in Hamilton 

Screens will show key information such as health promotion videos, waiting times, local news and transport information to the public and staff. 

Plasma screens showing key health messages have been installed in three NHS Lanarkshire sites as part of a three-year pilot.

Wishaw General, Monklands Hospital and Douglas Street Community Health Clinic in Hamilton were the sites chosen for the scheme.

A total of five screens will show key information such as health promotion videos, waiting times, local news and transport information to the public and staff.

NHS Lanarkshire’s head of communications Karon Hamilton said: “These screens will hopefully help promote key health messages to patients and visitors while they are waiting within the various sites.

“In addition to showing health promotion videos on a wide-range of topics, from bowel cancer screening to oral health messages, they will display national news headlines, and will eventually provide local news and transport information.

“Over the course of the three year trial the project will be evaluated and if successful further screens could be installed in other NHS Lanarkshire sites.”

Two screens will be located at Wishaw General, one in the accident and emergency department (A&E) and one in the coffee shop. 

At Monklands Hospital a screen will be located in the A&E and also in the out patients’ department. 

There will also be a screen in the waiting area at Douglas Street Community Health Clinic.

NHS Lanarkshire received £25,000 from the Scottish Government’s Public Focus and Patient Involvement Fund for the three year pilot.
