Hi has anyone any experience of unit 12 instead of unit 15 at hedge End?

Tricky to find even with a sat nav, so allow plenty of time. Two disabled spaces outside door, we measured 6 metres at furthest distance car to door. Inside, from door to inner office/ assessment room 4.5 metres, then 2 metres at most to chair. All on a flat level, easily wheelchair accessible. Disabled toilet available on same level.

We drove around for a good 15 minutes looking for this place. Even though our sat-nav told us we were there. It was on an industrial estate and we spend most of our time driving down dead-end streets until we found it tucked away in a back corner. It is in a place called "Physio World" and has a very small sign on the door saying "Pip Assessment Centre". Fortunately we left home in plenty of time or we would have been late to the assessment.
