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 reception for assistance as they are always happy to help.
There is a dedicated disabled car parking space to the rear of the surgery within the car park.
We have a wheelchair/walking frame for patients to use, at their own risk, should one be required while visiting our premises.
We have a ground floor disabled toilet.
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 reception desk to assist the hearing impaired. For more information on the loop hearing system visit the Hearing Link website: www.hearinglink.org/hearing-loops.
