The surgery is well equipped for disabled patients. The surgery comprises of automatic doors, wide corridors, and plenty of room in the waiting room for wheelchairs and a disabled toilet.
The toilets have Braille signs on them. Also, on request, we can obtain practice leaflets in Braille, although we do not stock these unless requested.
The reception at our surgery is fitted with a loop which is a devise that helps people who have hearing difficulties hear more loudly and clearly.
The surgery has easy access into the premises for anyone who is in a wheelchair. The doors at the entrance of the building are automatic. There is plenty of room in the waiting room for a wheelchair to be placed and there is also an automatic door into the Doctors rooms etc.
The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that people who have a disability or sensory loss receive information that they can access and understand (for example in large print, braille or via email) and professional communication support if they need it, such as from a British Sign Language interpreter.
For most of us our preferred method of contact is our home number or mobile number but for example, if you suffer from hard of hearing or blindness that may not be suitable for you. If you or someone you are caring for wishes us to contact you in another way, please do let us know by informing our reception staff at the practice. We will then record your needs by highlighting it on your medical records.
