United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust and DisabledGo have today launched their United Lincolnshire Hospitals Accessibility Checker. Visitors, patients and staff should now be able to find out more about the accessibility of hospital buildings and services with this new web tool.
Created by DisabledGo, a national not for profit organisation, the online resource is free to use and has been created following reports produced by DisabledGo’s surveyors who have been visiting and assessing every area of ULHT hospitals over the past year months to ensure accurate, detailed information is collected.
The information, including details of whether accessible parking bays are available, how far you would need to walk to get to an entrance, if a hearing loop is available at reception, if background music is played, if flashing fire alarms are available and if there are places to sit and rest, is available on the DisabledGo website and should also be available on the departmental pages on the UHLT website.
