This should not be described as being the Bath centre. It may have a Bath postcode, but is in Wells in Somerset 20 miles away. The bus takes 1 hr 29 mins, without allowing for any delays and when one allows for the time to get to Bath city centre, the journey time would be in excess of 90 mins so should not be counted as being within reasonable travelling time by ATOS

It is misleading to describe this as being in Bath.It has a Bath postcode,but is 20 miles away.It would take longer than 90 mins to get there by bus as the bus journey takes 1 hr 20 mins, but then one has to get to central Bath first.

There is a bus stop right outside of the Priory Health Park.

The PIP Consultation Centre is on ground floor but is on an elevated patch of land so there are small sets of stairs to climb but also a way for wheelchair users.

The car park is opposite the consultation centre is about a 24-50 metre walk depending on how far and or close you are parked.

I along with my mother had to walk 24 metres but this was used against her in one of the descriptors as it showed her 'ability' to walk more than 50 metres and thus 0 points awarded...

There isn't a toilet in the consultation centre so you have to travel to Priory Health Centre opposite the PIP consultation centre which is about a 10 metre walk.
