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.

The building is on a busy road with no parking facilities (it is on double yellow lines). Closest on street parking is more than 20m away, the bus stops are further. ARRANGE TO BE DROPPED OFF AND PICKED UP AT THE DOOR IF YOU STRUGGLE TO WALK.
It has a step at the entrance. It is NOT wheelchair friendly.
The staff try to leave the door open before appointments to enable people to enter more easily. There is a waiting room to the left inside a second door.
There is a downstairs toilet, with a reasonably wide door.
Some assessments have been conducted upstairs - there are two downstairs rooms that can be used SO STATE YOU CANNOT USE STAIRS ON YOUR FORMS IF YOU STRUGGLE WITH STAIRS. If there are lifts, we have not been informed of them.
