HEALTH POD - Victoria Road Surgery has a health pod that will take your blood pressure, weight and height calculating your BMI in the small room opposite the patient toilet in the corridor. We only ask you to wait 5 minutes after arriving before using the machine so if you have been rushing around you give your self time to relax. The machine tells you how to proceed but if you would like someone to speak to you about the procedure please ask reception and they will be happy to assist. Please let us know if you have any problems using our website - use the 'send us feedback' form and we will endeavour to answer any questions you may have.
