HEALTHCARE INFORMATION FOR FESTIVAL VISITORS
THE SURGERY HEALTH STATION HAS ARRIVED
We are introducing a new service called the Health Station that will let you perform some of your own tests at a time that is convenient for you without the need for an appointment.
We may ask you to use the Health Station to record your blood pressure, height, weight, and relevant questionnaires for your health conditions. The information is saved directly into your patient record electronically.
Using the Health Station when asked to do so by the doctor or nurse will give the clinician your test results before your appointment, freeing up more time in your appointment to discuss your condition.
