Just what the doctor ordered

New software for information and education screens at two health centres has been installed thanks to a £1,500 contribution from ExxonMobil Fawley. As well as informing patients when the medical staff are ready to see them, the screens at Blackfield Health Centre, Blackfield, and Waterside Health Centre, Hythe, also display a rolling programme of useful information and advice.

Dawn Poole, Operations Manager for Blackfield Health Centre and Waterside Health Centre, said: “The information screens are an important resource for us. As well as letting patients know that the doctor or nurse is ready to see them, they are a great way for the practice to get across some important messages to patients about how they can help themselves to stay healthy and also give information about local health services which are available for the patients to use. We are very grateful to ExxonMobil Fawley for helping us to make sure we can provide this service to our patients.”

Angharad Vaughan, Community Affairs Adviser at ExxonMobil Fawley, said: “One of our key priorities as a site is to be a good neighbour and support the local community where we can. As such, we were delighted to make this contribution towards the new software for the information and education screens at the Blackfield and Waterside health centres.”
