With regard to York Hospital, my husband had to go there for various appointments and yes, there is disabled parking, but depending on the time of your assessment, they may all be taken. So beware. There is a large several storey car park, but I've never been in there, so don't know if there are any disabled spaces - I can only assume (hopefully) that there are., but it is quite a walk to the entrance of the hospital.

I hope this helps.

This assessment centre has disabled parking directly outside main door, couple metres to door, once inside tiny entrance with mens toilets directly to your left, (if you need a short break from walking). Directly right is a short corridor , a few metres into the main office with seating, I noticed the reception desk is in the far right hand corner which you aim for consequently you tend to sit on the seats under the window which are on the right. Once my husband and myself were seated we noticed at the opposite side of room is higher seated chairs (2). It is 0n the ground floor and I believe there was a lift. Our face to face was on the ground floor - I noticed on our assessment notes which we requested from DWP - the assessor had wrote my husband walked to the interview room (20 metres) etc etc.
