The Surgery Pod will be located in a location within our waiting area and enables patients without clinical supervision, to perform their own checks such as blood pressure, weight, pulse, alcohol usage etc.

The Surgery Pod allows you to perform these simple checks at your own convenience, without making an appointment during our opening hours of 0800 – 1800 hours and therefore allows you to spend more high-value time with the doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional when necessary.

You no longer need to arrange appointments or attend at inconvenient times for simple checks these can now be done when it suits you. You may wish to do your BP before you go in to see the doctor or nurse or you can come in any time to use it.

What you can do on the Surgery Pod:-

Take your blood pressure

Take your weight and calculate your BMI

Enter information regarding your lifestyle i.e. smoking, alcohol, exercise and diet

Carry out a series of stress and anxiety questionnaires

It is very simple to use and on screen instructions take you through the process. However, if you do have difficulty you can ask a member of the reception team who would be happy to help you.
