Can you tell other claimants anything about travel and facilities for this PIP face-to-face assessment centre?

Please post in the comments section below if you can.

Things like:

  • Distance to nearest bus stop or rail station.
  • Nearest parking, any disabled parking.
  • Distance to walk if you’re dropped as close to the door as possible.
  • Wheelchair access.
  • Toilets, including disabled toilets.
  • Ground floor or first floor.
  • Lift available.
  • Anything else you think might be helpful.

Please don’t comment on the staff though – we won’t be able to publish your comments if you do.

I had the misfortune to visit earlier this year and my medical was in a room on the first floor. There is a manually controlled lift which scared the life out of me before the 'proper' assessment even began.

Nearest bus stop outside of the oval are which is St James Gate, but there are only a few buses that stop there.
6 Parking spaces on the road outside of the oval, no parking inside unless you get a permit from the reception area inside the centre, even if a blue badge is displayed a permit is still required.
Across the paved are to the door is around 10m. The facilities are all on the ground floor and are fully accessible.
