in key locations throughout hospitals and surgeries.

Healthcare bulletins, information and posters, which are pinned up on notice boards throughout the NHS, private hospitals and surgeries, are making way for a new digital signage medium – the portrait LCD electronic sign. At the same time fixed signs, tv’s and dot matrix waiting room screens are evolving towards free standing and wall mounted digital signs using LCD vertical screen technology.

As electronic sign technology gradually replaces the clutter of letter boards, white boards, posters and notices, it offers greater flexibility, while at the same time reducing hand written or typed and printed information. Therefore notices and bulletins are now being arranged then displayed on portrait LCD free standing or wall screens with visual brilliance, targeting the general public and staff in all areas of healthcare.

LCD Freestanding Digital displays for healthcare from Lobbysign Digital signage

Whether the location for the Lobbysign display is the hospital main reception, specialist department waiting area, A & E, an outpatients clinic, the doctor or dental surgery reception, a canteen or snack area, corridor or even car park, the design of the Lobbysign screen fits well into virtually any medical environment. Information is effectively displayed to patients and visitors, making them feel at ease and informed.

The Lobbysign electronic display board draws the attention of walking and seated patients and visitors, through a combination of its simple way of displaying notices and its professional appearance. Lobbysign digital signage delivers all essential information from waiting times, doctor information, clinic times, department locations, health notices, practical advice, cleanliness, new clinics and facilities. Importantly, on the the Lobbysign, cancellation notices and crucial bulletins can override or interrupt electronic poster-style healthcare information and regular running announcements, to provide immediate essential updates to patients. A wealth of relevant and topical NHS and healthcare information can be shown in key locations throughout hospitals and surgeries.

Both the Lobbysign free standing and wall mounted display systems have a contemporary feel. They are usually positioned either near an entrance or set back in the reception or waiting room, giving greatest possible impact to viewers both close up and at a distance.The Lobbysign LED sign uses a dot matrix format to display high impact text, whilst on the Lobbysign LCD notices and announcements are supported and enhanced by images and video clips.

In the smallest private reception or NHS waiting area the wall mounted Lobbysign digital sign is equally as effective the free standing sign. The wall mounted display fits neatly on a bracket, and can either be angled or positioned flat against a wall. Its professional, sign-like appearance gives it considerably more impact in communicating than a tv screen fitted to a wall.

In other areas where staff and the public pass through, such as corridors, concourses, walkways and atriums, the Lobbysign LCD or LED electronic sign will get across particularly important messages in the second or two of time needed to grasp the attention of passers by. In waiting areas where the digital signs have a captive audience, the portrait style Lobbysign electronic message board draws and holds the attention of onlookers, then communicates continuous notices and information in a simple, but highly effective way.
