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.

Nearest bus stop about 500 yards away.
Parking and disabled parking directly outside the building.
at the most from door to assessment room 20metres.
Fully accessible facilities on the ground floor.
only problem is - door to building is not automatic and can be difficult to open due to the weight.
