There is nowhere close to centre to park. I had to leap out of car and my driver went to park up. If you said you came by bus and train you would fail the mobility component, quite a walk from both. Very hard to find from the directions sent if you don't know the area. Directions assume you live in stockport area.
There were two ground floor consultation rooms.
A door entry system that was nottoo obvious or with clear instructions how to use.

Fairly close to the rail station and also very near to a frequent bus route only one stop from the bus station - fairly small assessment centre. Water available and accessible toilet
