Disability Access

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. If you are unable to stand in a queue for even a short period of time, please do alert the reception staff BEFORE taking a seat. They will then come to you.

Wheelchair Access

Our premises have easy access, wide corridors, no steps, and a toilet for the disabled.

If you have any difficulty in using our facility do please ask a member of staff who will be pleased to assist you.

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. If you are applying for a Blue Badge, all we can offer to support your application is a medical summary report with a surgery stamp on it.  This is free of charge.

Loop System

We have a loop induction system please ask reception for more details. For more information on the loop hearing system visit Hearing Link website.
