Can you tell other claimants anything about travel and facilities for this PIP face-to-face assessment centre?

Please post in the comments section below if you can.

Things like:

  • Distance to nearest bus stop or rail station.
  • Nearest parking, any disabled parking.
  • Distance to walk if you’re dropped as close to the door as possible.
  • Wheelchair access.
  • Toilets, including disabled toilets.
  • Ground floor or first floor.
  • Lift available.
  • Anything else you think might be helpful.

Please don’t comment on the staff though – we won’t be able to publish your comments if you do.

I was able to walk in five minutes. It would be quite a distance from the train station if someone had mobility issues, though. At least forty minutes walk. It was on the ground floor and clearly marked on the door. You press a bell button but due to traffic noise you can't hear them answer, which can't be helped. I just assumed someone had spoken and said my name. The doors are frosted so people can't see you from outside. I never used toilets, bus or parking so cannot comment on those areas.
