We have worked with AccessAble to provide detailed information for many of our departments, wards and services.

Surveyors from AccessAble spent several months in our buildings surveying corridors, wards, parking facilities, clinics and other public areas of our hospitals and community sites.

Patients, visitors and staff can use the guide to find a whole range of accessibility information, such as where a department is located in relation to the main entrance, where car parking spaces are located, whether there are lifts to access other floors, whether a hearing loop is fitted at reception, information about accessible toilets and much more.

The guides are available online at the AccessAble website for:

  • Cafes / Restaurants
  • Clinic/Health Centres
  • Counselling and Mental Health
  • Dentists
  • Doctors Surgeries
  • Hospitals, Clinics and Medical Centres
  • Inpatient/Residential Units
  • Offices
  • Residential Accommodation
  • Resource Centres
  • Specialist Services

Visit the AccessAble website to access these online guides.
