Feel confident visiting one of our buildings

Whether you have a physical disability, anxiety about visiting a new place or just want to know what to expect, we are committed to ensuring that our NHS buildings are accessible to everyone. Having detailed and accurate information about the building you are going to visit is the first step in doing this.

AccessAble has undertaken in-person surveys of over 350 of our buildings to create online user guides that provide detailed information on a range of accessibility criteria to help you plan and prepare accordingly before visiting one of our buildings.

What information is in an accessibility guide?

The guides include facts, figures and photographs that tell you all about options, car parking facilities, main entrance access as well as different features about getting around the building including walking distances to toilets, fixtures and fittings, signage, style of handrails, wall colour, hearing assistance and lighting.

Each guide contains over 1,000 pieces of information. View the guides on our 'Property Search' webpage.
