Patient Self Management and Referrals
Please also note that we have recently added a Patient Self-Referrals page to the website.
You can access this by clicking on the link in the Further Information section.
Please take a look to see if you may be able to avoid the need for an appointment by Self-Referral to the service you require.
The Surgery Pod, located in the Practice lobby, enables patients without clinical supervision, to perform their own checks such as blood pressure, weight, pulse, alcohol usage etc, which are then instantaneously updated into your patient records and can be immediately viewed by the doctors and nurses.
The Surgery Pod allows you to perform these simple checks at your own convenience, without making an appointment during our opening hours of 0800 - 1830 hours and therefore allows you to spend more high-value time with the doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional when necessary.
You may no longer need to arrange appointments or attend at inconvenient times for simple checks these can now be done at your convenience. 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 for those that would like to use it and instructions are display at the pod. If you have difficulty you can ask a member of staff to help you.
If any of the information you have entered means you need to see a doctor then the pod will direct you to make an appointment at reception, which doesn't need to be on the same day as using the pod.
All this information is entered directly into your medical notes.
So in order to help your doctor and to keep an eye on your own health visit the pod today.
