As per previous post everything is on Ground Floor including accessible toilets. If driving parking is limited and the Lilac Centre is up a short but steep hill from the carpark requiring a strong "pusher" if using a manual wheelchair. Getting dropped outside might be a better option.

The building is within the hospital grounds and the travel directions explain which entrance to use if you're being dropped off by taxi.

It's a large porta-cabin/tem porary building set up with a ramp going to the door. Once you're inside the building, everything is on the same level, so no stairs etc.

If you're traveling by taxi, the staff will call one for you when you're appointment finishes.
