If you have any special needs please let our staff know so that we can help and ensure you get the same support in the future.
The surgery has been specially designed to make it easier for disabled patients to visit. There are no steps at the entrance of the building giving patients easy access. Due to fire regulations, we do have heavy fire doors, however if you have trouble opening these please ask patient services for assistance as they are always happy to help.
All our facilities are on the ground floor, at all sites.
There are several dedicated disabled car parking spaces available immediately outside the front entrance of the surgery.
We have a wheelchair for patients’ use, at their own risk, should you require one whilst visiting our premises.
We have a disabled toilet at the surgery.
Disabled Parking – Blue Badge Scheme
The Blue Badge scheme is for people with severe mobility problems. It allows Blue Badge holders to park close to where they need to go.
We have a loop induction system at the patient services desk to assist the hearing impaired. For more information on the loop hearing system visit Hearing Link website.
