Disability Access




At Woodside, we are committed to making our information and services accessible to all.

If you have a disability that requires any additional assistance to achieve this, please do inform a member of staff.


Hearing Impairment

Reception has the Induction Loop system with the Loop sign clearly displayed. We can ensure that an interpreter is present if an appointment is booked in advance (usually 48hours notice is required). A double appointment should be booked. If you cannot book ahead for any reason, GPs and nurses will always happily see you and will use visual aids or write down information as necessary.


Loop System

We have a loop induction system at the reception desk to assist the hearing impaired.


Learning disabilities

Information using pictures or more appropriate language can be provided if necessary.


Mobility or physical disabilities

There are disabled parking spaces available at the side of the building for patients use.

There are accessible toilets located in both waiting areas.

The entrance to the main building and Woodside Medical Centre is wheelchair-accessible, however, if you should experience any difficulties or you find a potential obstruction to this, please do inform us immediately.


Blind / Partially Sighted

If you or family members are blind or partially sighted we can give you a 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.
