Access for Patients with a Disability

The practice is in a converted Georgian building.  Although there is are two steps at the entrance there are ramps which can be placed at the entrance to enable wheelchairs to access the practice.  There is a consulting room on the ground floor where patients who are unable to climb stairs can be seen.

There is an induction hearing loop system for patients with hearing aids at the reception.

Accessible Information Standard

To help those patients that have difficulty accessing information about their care in the standard ways.  We aim to help by:

  • Asking patients if they have any information or communication needs and find out how to meet their needs where practical
  • Recording those needs in a set way
  • Highlighting a person’s file so it is clear that they have information or communication needs and clearly explain how those needs should be met
  • Sharing information about a person’s needs with other NHS and adult social care providers, when they have consent or permission to do so
  • Making sure that people get information in an accessible way and communication support if they need it

Please ask Reception if you need an accessible information standard sheet to complete. This will then be updated in your records. We also have large print registration forms available. (see links below)
