Both our High Street and Rosyth Practices have stairs, however our Maygate Practice has disabled access. It also contains a disabled toilet however it is not fully up to standards as it is slightly undersized.
Disabled parking is available directly opposite our Maygate Practice and there are also many town centre car parks nearby which offer disabled access. The nearest to our High Street Practice would be Bruce Street Car Park which offers 4 disabled parking spaces or the new Tesco on Carnegie Drive.There are also St Margarets Street Car Parks down from our Maygate Practice which also offers 4 disabled parking spaces although this is located slightly downhill from the Practice.
The High Street & Rosyth Practices' have a doorbell which can be used if you need some help with the stairs, for example if you need help with a childs pram.
We have induction loops present to aid those with a hearing impairment.
