• Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust Accessibility Checker is now live!

    Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL) has its very own Accessibility Checker thanks to a partnership with DisabledGo.com. It was launched in conjunction with CNWL’s Disabled Employee’s Network (DEN+) on 4 December 2017, International Day for People with Disability. It’s totally free to use and has loads of detailed information about the accessibility of the Trust’s mental health and community sites.

    Visitors, patients and staff can use this information to find out about the access to the service they are visiting so they can be confident about what they will find. You can find out where car parking spaces are located, whether there are lifts to access other floors, whether a hearing loop is fitted at reception, whether information is available in alternative formats, in-depth information about accessible toilets and much more.

    Most importantly, all the details have been checked in person, so you can be sure you’ll get all the facts.

    This resource will be a great help to disabled people, their carers, friends and family. It will equally be of help to people who would just like to know more about areas and facilities at these sites, such as parking, walking distances, main entrances and toilet facilities.

    Commenting on the new service, Barry Stevenson, Chairman at DisabledGo.com said:

    “At DisabledGo.com we exist solely to help as many people as possible to be able to access their community and live their life to the full, by providing essential detailed access guides.”

    “Accessibility information is vital for people with physical, sensory and cognitive health conditions, carers, older people and those of us who simply feel anxious visiting a new place for the first time. The Trust’s investment in this comprehensive information will enable people to plan, lower anxiety and help improve everyone’s experience while visiting.”

    “The partnership between CNWL and DisabledGo.com strongly links to the Trust’s commitment to put patients first and I hope that the Trust is recognised for its trailblazing role, both in the region and nationally. We look forward to hearing people’s feedback about the service and developing an App version, which will be available in 2018.”

    CNWL’s Equalities and Diversity Lead, Priti Bhatt said:

    “I welcome the fact that we have partnered up with DisabledGo.com. This demonstrates our organisation has made a clear and visible commitment to making our services truly accessible to our disabled patients, carers, staff and community.”
