If you have any specific needs please let our staff know so that we can help you, and also ensure you get the same support in the future.
The Practice has been specifically designed to make it easier for disabled patients to visit. There are no steps but we apologise in advance to those patients with larger electric wheelchairs and mobility scooters who may find the corridors a little narrow to navigate. Manual wheelchairs are available to borrow from the practice to help the frail and poorly (who do not usually use a wheelchair) with the short journey from the car park to the practice. Please ask at the reception desk if you would like to borrow a wheelchair for this purpose.
An accessible toilet is located next to the main entrance (near to the main waiting area) for wheelchair users. There are four additional toilets located on the opposite side of the health centre.
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. For more information and an Application Form visit your local council office. Disabled spaces for blue badge holders are located at the edge of the car park, adjacent to the health centre.
We have a loop induction system at Reception to assist the hearing impaired. For more information on the loop hearing system visit Hearing Link website. Please remember to turn your hearing aid to the T position to benefit from this piece of equipment.
