If you have any special needs please let our staff know so that we can help and ensure you get any support you need.
The Surgery has been specially designed to make it easier for disabled patients to visit. There are no steps at the entrance of the building giving patients easy access. Due to fire regulations, we do have heavy fire doors, however if you have trouble opening these please ask Reception for assistance as they are always happy to help.
There are several dedicated disabled car parking spaces available immediately outside the front entrance of The Surgery.
We have a wheelchair for patient’s use, at their own risk, should you require one whilst visiting our premises.
We have two disabled toilets one on each floor.
Disabled Parking – Blue Badge Scheme
The Blue Badge scheme is for people with severe mobility problems. It allows Blue Badge holders to park close to where they need to go. Please contact Bristol city council for further information on how to apply.
We have a loop induction system at the reception desk to assist the hearing impaired. For more information on the loop hearing system visit Hearing Link website.
We can arrange British Sign Language interpreters if needed, please let reception know when booking your appointment.
