Summary

The pathways were improved by creating a self-care system in the practice’s waiting room, which provides contraceptive, asthma and weight checks, as well as a blood pressure monitor. The self-care system was simple to implement and gave sufficient privacy for patients to be confident about using the machines, alleviating their fear of revealing the results in a crowded waiting.
