Appointment Booking System

Putting in place an appointment system, where-in for different time periods through the day, only a certain number of appointments are allowed- this limits over-crowding of the facility at any given time

Registration Ticket System

Where it is difficult to set up such an appointment system, encourage a ticketing process for registration, wherein patients are expected to get a ticket number from the guard.

The guard is then able to use the tickets to track the number of people within the hospital (by marking the numbers inside, left or waiting) and then using that to allow more visitors.

Covid Safety Kits

Have signage outside the facility that encourages everyone to bring their own personal items of pen, bottle of water, tissues. The signage can also direct patients/visitors to a nearby shop where they can buy these items.
