Patients Offered Latest Technology to Self-Check-In at Altnagelvin Hospital’s Emergency Department
2 min read
The Emergency Department (ED) at Altnagelvin Hospital, Londonderry is now using the latest technology to self-check-in patients.
This will provide patients with an easy-to-use self-streaming system for checking in and to report their condition using a touch screen kiosk. These kiosks provide an opportunity to enhance the current triage system that is in operation within the ED, minimise delays and signpost patients to the appropriate care stream.
“We are delighted to be the first HSC Trust in Northern Ireland to offer this latest technology to our ED patients and we hope that this new system will help to minimise lengthy waiting times for triage in our Emergency Department where possible.”
The following article was published on the Western Health and Social Care Trust website.
Watch the video below to find out how to use the new self-check-in system.

- Patient Check-in
“Depending on the severity of the illness, patients may wish to speak to a local pharmacist or consult their local GP or GP Out of Hours services in the first instance. However, if you or a family member suspect what you are experiencing is of a more serious nature then do not hesitate to attend the hospital’s Emergency Department or call 999 if necessary.”
