The self-service SiSU health station has returned to Blue Mountains Hospital in Katoomba so more people can check their blood pressure, heart rate, weight and using a short questionnaire, have their risk of diabetes assessed.

The high tech booth also calculates your body mass index and percentage of body fat, with your results emailed to you.

Previously the SiSU machine performed 160 health checks and recommended a total of 23 GP consultations for Blue Mountains users.

Everyone who uses the station is encouraged to talk to their GP at their next appointment about their results.

Until August 6, 2019, the SiSU health station will be located near the hospital's auxiliary shop.

It's important to remember the automated simple health check does not replace a consultation with a doctor, said a Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District spokesman.
