New Surgery Pod Available!
Our new Surgery Pod is available for you to use at any time. Just book a time slot with a receptionist!
You can use it to check your blood pressure or weight and the readings will automatically update your records. We recommend you use it before any appointments with our Healthcare Assistant or our Practice Nurses. It will mean that these measurements will have been done and give you more time to talk with them in your appointment. Of course, you are welcome to use it at any time that suits you, particularly if you need to keep a closer eye on your health for a while.
The Surgery Pod does even more. Sometimes it may feel difficult to talk to a doctor or a nurse about an issue face-to-face or you may feel anxious about making an appointment. The Surgery Pod offers a wide range of self-help checklists that you can work through at your own pace. You can choose to share your results to your records so that your doctor or nurse can begin to understand some of your concerns if or when you do make an appointment. The Surgery Pod offers help with:
- Epilepsy Check
- Contraceptive Pill Check
- Anxiety and Depression
- Alcohol Screening
- Smoking Status
- Asthma Check
- Lower Urinary Tract Symptom Check (for men)
- Come in and give it a go!
