We have a  'medical pod' in the waiting area at each surgery. This is for use by patients who are not already on treatment for blood pressure. Please ask reception for a free token and you may use the machine to record your weight, height and blood pressure. The machine speaks instructions but it DOES NOT speak out your weight. At completion the machine will print two tickets with the weight height and blood pressure readings.  Please put your name on the slip, tick whether you are a smoker or not and hand one of the copies in to reception.We can use this information to update your records. Please note that if the blood pressure reading falls outside a set range the receptionist may ask you to have your blood pressure checked again by a health care assistant.
