We are commencing our Health Hub pilot which will become a permanent part of Westminster Surgery and accessible for all patients. The aim is to create an innovative hub which allows patients to perform their own blood pressure, pulse, body mass index and other screenings to assess lifestyle and risk.
Once a month these will be supervised by a healthcare assistant, this will enable patients to access blood tests for cholesterol and diabetic blood screening. Patients will also be able to access self-care material and social care information and it will be an area where patients can receive information on a range of national health campaigns.
The outcome will identify any areas for improvement in a patient’s lifestyle and will assist in the delivery of patient-centred care planning.
