Our premises have access suitable for disabled persons but if you experience difficulty please let us know and we will see what we can do to help.
We no longer allow mobility scooters into the surgery. The decision is not one that was taken lightly and we have introduced the new rule on health and safety grounds. It was agreed mobility scooters could be a potential health and safety risk in a confined area, especially where there may be small children and older patients. They also pose an increased hazard for people trying to leave the building in the event of a fire.
We appreciate this will make it more difficult for some users but we feel we have no alternative. We have consulted with Disability North on the matter.
