By Car

Exit the M90 at Junction 2 and follow the signs for Dunfermline/A823(M).

At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto Queensferry Road/A823.

Continue towards Dunfermline until you pass Greggs and Domino’s on your right. Take the next left onto Izatt Avenue.

Continue for 0.1 miles and Dunfermline Business Centre is on your left.

By Bus

The nearest bus stop is Hospital Hill Surgery on Izatt Avenue and is served by the number 87 bus and other local services. (87 bus also runs to & from the railway station at St Margarets Drive).

Bus numbers 3, 7, 19 and 55 also stop on Hospital Hill.

The PIP Assessment Centre is the next building along from the surgery and is in the signposted Fife Council Dunfermline Business Centre. All parking spaces directly in front of the building are for blue badge holders and access to the building is by ramps to either side of the door.

The reception & waiting area for PIP Assessment is on the left as you enter the building. Everything, including toilets, is on the ground floor. The toilets are to the right of the main building reception area.

There appears to be two rooms directly behind the reception desk area, however, there is a long corridor (over 20m) to get to the other assessment rooms from the waiting area.

When I saw how far away these rooms were, I was wishing aloud that I had used my mobility scooter instead of my rollator. When the Assessor saw that I was struggling she went away to get a chair - I thought she meant a seat to sit on to rest but was surprised when she came back with a wheelchair to take me along to where the assessment would be carried out!

You may need a navigator to find this place. Small ramps into building ,can drive close to ramp, all one level.found the actual assessment room a bit cramped. It's probably easier to find than I'm making out,but we got lost thanks to my awesome ability to plan and follow journeys.
