Disability Discrimination Act
We are compliant with this Act. If you have a disability that requires particular help please let us know and we will make special provision for you.
We are unable to change some of the physical aspects of the building (like the slope outside the surgery) but we can get around most problems. We have a surgery wheelchair and staff are able to help you get out of your car and into the surgery, open doors for you and reserve a parking space closest to the front door.
We can arrange appointment times that are most suitable (including being seen outside normal surgery hours so the building isn’t crowded). The toilet has been adapted for disabled use, and staff have been trained to help patients with hearing or visual loss. We will also visit you at home should your disability make it impossible to access our services at the surgery if this is what you want.
