Surgery Pod

The Practice now has a new Surgery Pod that can be used by patients without clinical supervision to perform tests and provide information that will be transferred directly to your patient medical record. The Surgery Pod is a multilingual touchscreen computer that is connected to digital scales and our blood pressure monitor. 

 

You can use the Surgery Pod to measure your blood pressure, weight, input your height (using standalone height measure) and answer questions about your lifestyle such alcohol intake, smoking and exercise. The Surgery Pod also allows for reviews of anxiety, contraception as well as a comprehensive new patient health review. Other types of reviews may be added in the future. 

The Surgery Pod is located in the Booth next to the reception desk. Appointments slots to use the surgery pod can be booked any day by calling reception on 020 3538 3959 – Please advise the receptionists what you will be using the Pod for so that they can allocate the correct amount of time for your visit. We would recommend calling between 10.30-12.30 and 2.30-4.30 to book a appointment slot with the pod. The Pod with have available slots between 8.30am – 6.30pm every working day. 

When using the Pod please follow the instructions that are provided in the booth - If you get stuck, please speak with a receptionist who will be able to assist.
