Towcester Rotary Club Contributes to the Health Pod at Brook Health Centre
In April of this year the Club funded half the costs of establishing a “Health Pod” at the Brook Health Centre, Towcester. This private area allows patients to take their B/P, weight and height without seeing the Practice Nurse. It also allows the patient to calculate their own BMI, (Body Mass indicator) and to check for Auricular Fibrillation. Should the patient be concerned at any of the findings a referral to a practitioner can be arranged. This facility will play a major part in patients managing their own Health.
