The building looks awful and run down but on the inside was quite nice. Wheelchair access is fine, there's a large waiting area with different types of chairs, some with arms, some not. There's a water machine with juice that you can add. There were toilets but I didn't use them so can't comment.
I was seen by a nurse who was very nice, she interacted with us and input information on the computer. There are a number of cameras in the waiting room and outside the building. There;s a side road nearby where you can park on the double yellow lines if you have a blue badge.
Now it's wait for the results.
