Did you know you can record key medical information yourself by using our Surgery Pod? The Pod is located in our waiting room, and talks you though recording your height, weight and blood pressure, as well as some lifestyle questions. The data is then stored on your medical record and is available to the nurse or doctor. People with long-term conditions will be invited in their review letters to make use of the Pod, but everyone can use it and help to free up time in consultations.

For more information, including a step-by-step video, refer to our Surgery Pod page.
And remember, you don't need an appointment to use the Pod - just pop in during opening hours (8am - 6pm).

The practice is open 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday (except public holidays and training days).
Remember: No appointment is necessary to use the Pod!
Instead of waiting in a queue at reception desk to check-in, why not use the touch-screen (housed in the main entrance). It's simple to use and lets the Doctor/Nurse know you are waiting to be seen.
