Disability Access Policy


< Back to policies & procedures

If you have any additional needs please let our staff know so that we can help you, and also ensure you get the same support in the future.

Wheelchair Access

We have full and easy access for those using wheelchairs. The front entrance is flat and automatic double doors make entry easy for all. We do have some clinical rooms on the 1st floor, so please do advise our reception staff if you are unable to go upstairs and they will arrange for you to be seen on the ground floor.

Space is available for mothers using prams and pushchairs, but we do request that prams are left in the lobby area and not taken into consulting rooms if possible to avoid injury to others.

There is a baby-changing table in the disabled toilet.

Disabled Parking

Unfortunately we do not have any parking at the surgery for patients, however there is plenty of street parking and disabled parking outside the surgery.

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.

Loop System

We have a loop induction system at Reception to assist the hearing impaired. For more information on the loop hearing system visit the Hearing Link website.

Blind/Partially Sighted

If you or your family members are blind or partially sighted we can give you a CD or large print of our Practice leaflet upon request. Please ask our staff for further information.

Guide Dogs

Guide dogs are welcome at the Practice but we ask that you be aware of other patients and staff who may have an allergy or fear of dogs.

Please visit the Guide Dog website for further information.
