The car park is no longer free, hourly charge machine not accessible if in wheelchair as faces a fence. the medical centre is the only organisation in this group of buildings but it's opposite the rail station and only long stay car park in Aberystwyth now so tends to be full. Blue badges are not exempt from charges there are only two disabled parking spaces in the car park - must show blue badge or fined. There's a ramp but railings only on one side. The bus stop at 100 meters going into aber is no longer there. The bus station is about 400 meters - other side of train station but must walk round.

The Capita PIP assessment centre in Aberystwyth has a small car park immediately outside but there are no parking spaces reserved for claimants.
I had to walk about 200 metres from a retail centre car park.
There is a bus stop about 100 metres from the centre and the railway station is about 200 metres.
