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.

Disabled Access

There are reserved (marked) disabled parking spaces near the front of the Medical Centre in Easthope Road. Access to the building is provided by automatic doors and all our consultation rooms are on the ground floor. However some consultation rooms are quite small and if this is a problem for you please tell our receptionists when making your appointment. If you require any assistance, please ask any member of staff. A disabled toilet is provided.



This is available in the public pay and display car park opposite the medical centre.

Please do not park in the Ambulance bay at the front of the medical centre, this is for ambulances only

Disabled spaces unless you have a disabled person parking permit

Spaces at the side of the practice as these are for doctors and staff

Also please do not block the access to the side of the Medical Centre. The doctors need access to the road to attend emergency calls and the residents of St Dunstans Close require access to their homes.

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.

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 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.
