A03 1. How will your system benefit at least one person in the Health Centre? The receptionist will be greatly helped by the new system. It will mean that they are not wasting their time telling patients repetitive information, such as opening times, that could just as easily have been displayed in the new system.

This would allow people to access the system from the comfort of their own home, which is a lot more convenient, especially for people who are housebound.
