Access Statement

Ashbourne Physiotherapy and Sports Injuries Centre is committed to providing access to treatment for all and the premises have been designed to accommodate wheelchair users and those with a variety of access difficulties.

The clinic is on the outskirts of the town and, while not in walking distance of the town for all, there is access from the town centre on the free ‘shopper hopper’ bus every ½ hour from Wednesday to Saturday 10 til 4.

Free car parking is in close proximity to the door with one designated space for those with blue badges. There is also free use of cycle parks in close proximity of the centre.

There is a doorbell to attract attention on arrival if there are difficulties encountered with the main door.

The ground floor at the centre gives full access for wheelchair users and the toilet is fully equipt to aid those with disabilities. There is a 4th treatment room and an exercise area available upstairs but all treatments available at the centre can be provided on the ground floor if required.

Alarm systems including the fire system allow for those with visual or hearing difficulties.

Clients requiring interpreters can be accommodated.

Exercise sheets and other information can be provided in larger print as required.

When clients book an appointment, reception staff can answer any queries or concerns that may arise re access at the clinic.

We welcome comments from clients if there are aspects of access which have been overlooked.
