Creating a PKB kiosk

If you would like to provide kiosk access for patients to use when they come into the service this can easily be achieved with a tablet computer. Here we have explained the set up process using a Windows 10 tablet, detailing the necessary steps to lock down some of the tablet functions so the user is guided straight to PKB.
