Disability Access Policy

Disability Access

The Practice building has been designed for disabled access. There is a disabled access point at the reception desk and disabled toilets.

  • We would ask that you let us know if you need help as your disability may not be a visible one.
  • We would also welcome any suggestions you may have in making your visit to the surgery easier.
  • You are welcome to bring a supporter with you if you need extra help when you see the doctor or nurse.
