Disabled Patients & Carers

If you or a family member have a disability please let us know. We are able to make reasonable adjustments to enable you to have the same level of access as other patients. This could involve longer appointments, appointments at specific times, alternative methods of booking appointments, home visits, large print documents etc.

We also have an on-site car park for blue-badge holders only. Please let reception know if you have any special requirements. Our ground floor is adapted to support patients with limited mobility.  

If you are a carer please let us know and we can add you to our carers' register. There is a great deal of support for carers available.
