The Surgery Pod
Both Adelaide Street and Harris Medical Centre each have a Surgery Pod in their waiting room. These are free to use for our patients.
If you have never used it before, just go up and touch the screen and follow the instructions - there is no need to make an appointment. With the Surgery Pod you can;
- Take your own blood pressure
- Complete a new patient questionnaire
- Take various health surveys on smoking, alcohol consumption, depression assessment and BMI (Weight vs Height)
What's more is that all the results are added directly to your medical record.
