Drayton Medical Practice's SurgeryPod Success

Drayton Medical Practice's SurgeryPod Success

Drayton Medical Practice are based in Shropshire, England and service 17,500 patients in Drayton and surrounding areas.  The practice is based within the same building as other core primary care service such as Dentists, Physiotherapists and Community Nurses.

The team at Drayton started using SurgeryPod to coincide with their medicine review initiative and needed to facilitate extra blood pressure monitoring and recording.  The Pod is located in the main patient waiting area, partitioned with a privacy booth.  We spoke to Joe Duxberry, IT Supervisor at the practice who said, "Patients like to just pop along and use the Pod when they’re passing or calling in to pick up a repeat prescription."

Speaking of how activity on the SurgeryPod is ramping up, Joe confirmed that "We’re encouraging patients to use the pod and staff to signpost patients to it. Our usage is increasing."

The practice often volunteers to be trailblazers for new technologies and as such are looking forward to advancements and opportunities in healthcare technology. 

We’re excited to announce that Drayton Medical Practice will be taking part in our user acceptance testing (UAT) on the first of our new screens, designed to improve the feedback we present to patients.  The blood pressure results screen can be added to any protocol that takes blood pressure measurements and describes where the result falls within Low, Ideal and High ranges, according to NHS guidelines.  The new screen also features an area where practices can choose to add their own text to signpost patients according to their local services.

If you would like to get involved in UAT or would like to register your interest to add this new screen to your protocols when UAT has been completed, drop us an email expressing your interest to: thslsupport@microtech-group.co.uk
