About a 10 minute walk from the train station on the flat. Not sure where the nearest bus stop is. Small car park, including one designated disabled space. Ramp up to front door, one step, but they'll bring a ramp out if you ring the doorbell. I'd guesstimate it's about 10 metres from the disabled parking space to reception. Once in the porchway, need to push a button on the panel in front of you and to the right in order to open the door. Reception is in the room to the left, with a magnificent high ceiling! Lovely old building, I was assessed on the ground floor, but there is lift access to upper floor, accessible lavatory on the ground floor (slightly irritating layout for my needs).
Facility is used for a range of other services, from private physiotherapy to counselling.
