Baby Changing Facilities
The practice has a baby changing unit in the ground floor disabled toilet.
We embrace the principles of the Disability Act. We have limited parking outside both surgeries for disabled parking, flat level access, relevant toilet facilities and raised seating in patient waiting rooms.
The practice continues to invest heavily in Information Technology. We have recently replaced almost half our computers with new ones and undergone a major software upgrade to our clinical system to keep up with new technology. We hope these changes will bring benefits to many aspects of your care. The Practice can now receive results directly from the pathology laboratory at Chesterfield Royal Hospital in a much shorter time.
