Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT) have partnered with AccessAble to create detailed Access Guides for the Trust’s sites and services.

The guides are 100% facts, figures and photographs and give lots of useful information to work out if somewhere is going to be accessible. They cover everything from parking to hearing loops, walking distances and accessible toilets.
We know everyone’s accessibility needs are different, which is why having detailed, accurate information is so important. It’s why all of the details you’ll find in the guides have been checked in person, by trained surveyors.
As well as helping our service users and visitors, the free Accessibility Guides are ideal for carers, to help remove some of the concerns associated with bringing a loved one to an unfamiliar place.
People considering applying for a role at HPFT will now be able to look up this useful information and existing staff visiting different locations in the course of their work will also benefit.
HPFT’s Director of Quality and Safety and Chief Nurse Dr Jane Padmore accepted a plaque from AccessAble and said: “It’s so important to make our services as accessible as we can for our service users. These new guides will help with this, as well as reducing the numbers of missed appointments.”
All the guides are available at www.AccessAble.co.uk and on the AccessAble App.
