Kings Treatment Centre
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
Part of Royal Derby Hospital. Includes Urology Outpatients, Pulvertaft Hand Centre, Head & Neck Outpatients and Eye outpatients. There is also Medequip, a convenience store and a cafe which shut around 4pm.
Transport & Parking
Nearest car park is number 2. This car park is usually full. Nearest bus stop is stop B (Royal Derby Trent Barton) which has shelter with seating.
Both the revolving door and automatic door can be accessed in a wheelchair; although usually one or the other is out of order. As you enter there is a reception desk with lowered counter and T loop to the left and Medequip, convenience store and cafe to the right. There are two lifts near reception. The corridor is long with seating (with arms) at regular intervals. The signs are written clearly with some colour coding but I'm not sure if you can class them as large print. I also didn't see braille label's.
The disabled toilet is in main entrance near Medequip through a medium weight door. All the toilets in the hospital are pretty much the same. Grey grab rails around toilet and sink. A lowered mirror and coat hook. 2-3 bins. Just enough turning space to turn although I feel many of them you'd struggle to fit in two people and a large wheelchair. There are no changing places toilets at Royal Derby.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
They need to build a changing places toilet in my opinion; especially because it is a hospital.
