Attended Stuart House today, 25/11/16.
You can park outside the door if you have a blue badge, The is a barrier as you drive in off the road. Ring the buzzer and say you have an appointment with Capita and that you have a blue badge. They will raise the barrier and let you in.
The building is set well back from the road and is a long walk from the car park across the busy main road.
There are lifts to Capita on the second floor and clean loos, although I didn't see any wheelchair accessible ones ( sure there are some as it's a modern building).
The waiting area is OK. The seating is what you'd expect and they have a water dispenser if you need a drink. The receptionist was pleasant.
Good luck!!

Stuart House sits beside a busy road in centre of Peterborough with double yellow lines and limited parking. There is a pay-and-display car park 60-70 yards over the road but as this car park serves the majority of local workers, you could actually walk another 200-300 yards to a space. You are directed to a lift to the Capita offices. The toilets are disabled-friend ly. After waiting for half an hour, conscious that I was being watched continuously, I was finally called.
After giving the HCP further evidence, she had a quick glance at the contents, typed the information to include in my file. Lucky I always request the complete transcript of the medical as she had done a very neat job of cherry-picking what she regarded as relevant.
I can't stress how important it is to have someone with you throughout the medical to witness what was said
