Don't know if it is too late to comment. Finally has my f2f with the Treatment Therapy Network, subcontracted to Atos. The centre is at Barnstaple Library - which is easy to find, but beware if you intend to drive yourself, because impossible to park close by, ie less than 20m, but can be dropped off at corner - about 10m to the inside. My friend drove me, and I explained why. No where near a bus stop. public waiting area, about 15m from waiting area. Can state if you need downstairs room, but full wheelchair access to upstairs room serviced by a lift, but further to walk if not a wheelchair user. there are toilets, but on the first floor. Very uncomfortable chairs, both in waiting area where the public sit and read, and in the assessment room.

That address is out of date, it is now on the Priory Hospital site by the GP surgeries and Boots, (as we all know the Priory Hospital is the old Workhouse so quite an appropriate location for Atos)
