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 Medical Centre 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 one of our patient navigators for assistance as they are always happy to help.
There are several dedicated disabled car parking spaces available immediately outside the front entrance of the Medical Centre.
We have a wheelchair for patient’s use, at their own risk, should you require one whilst visiting our premises.
Should need to visit the physiotherapy suite on the upper floor, there is a lift available for patient use.
We have two disabled toilets, one on each floor.
