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 have been to this centre twice and both times have had to register complaints about the same assessor.
It is under flats in a row of shops that are not easy to see from the road as the shop fronts face the car park to the rear
I would not believe this is easily accessible if you don't drive especially if going by train though believe buses run quite regularly on the main road

If you arrive by road it's not initially apparent where the parking and entrance is. Give yourself plenty of time.

There is ample parking once you find it. You can't park right outside but can do so within 20-50 metres. There aren't any disabled parking spaces. If you can be dropped closest to the door the distance is about 3 metres.

Wheelchair access is good as everything is on the ground floor. There is a disabled toilet adjacent to reception. The assessment room I used was right behind reception so from being dropped at the door I would say the maximum distance I walked was less than 10 metres.
