Disability Access

If you have any special needs please let our staff know so that we can help and ensure you get the same support in the future.

Wheelchair access

Our Harptree surgery is fully wheelchair accessible and the building is entirely on one level. The two doors leading to the waiting room are not power-assisted but a member of staff will be very happy to open them for you.

The Cameley surgery is a Grade II listed building and it has not been possible to provide suitable access to the upstairs consultation room nor the treatment room, where the nurses normally see patients. However, on request we can arrange for you to be seen by a doctor or nurse in the downstairs consultation room. Please mention if you have restricted mobility when booking your appointment. The main entrance is wheelchair accessible but not power assisted.

Disabled Parking – Blue Badge Scheme

The Blue Badge scheme is for people with severe mobility problems. It allows Blue Badge
holders to park close to where they need to go.

Loop System

At both surgeries we have a loop induction system at the reception desk to assist the hearing impaired.

Blind/Partially Sighted

If you or family members are blind or partially sighted we can give you a CD or large print of our practice leaflet upon request. Please ask reception for further information.

Guide Dogs

Guide dogs are welcome at the surgery but we ask that you be aware of other patients and staff who may have an allergy or fear of dogs.
