Access to the Clinic is via the Sainsbury's car park. Take the turning by the BP garage and follow the road round to the right, past the bus stops, and straight into the store's main car park. If you park and pay in Aisle D, and then with your back to Sainsbury's look straight ahead, you will see the Clinic in front of you.
There is a frequent bus service close by: buses 61, 261, 353, 402, 654 and R2, R3 and R4 all stop on or near the main roads within a few minutes’ walk of the Clinic.
Please give your name to the receptionist; you will be invited to take a seat in the lobby straight ahead until someone comes to greet you. We are on the first floor, and there is a flight of stairs up to the counselling room. If accessibility is a difficulty at any time then we can offer support by telephone.
