Access & Parking
The Old Church Surgery is situated within the Silverthorn Medical Centre. The Centre has a car park at the front of the building including disabled parking for blue badge holders. There is normally adequate on-street parking in addition to this. Please respect our neighbours and park appropriately without blocking driveways as we have unfortunately received a number of complaints from local residents of late.
Please take care that you do not park over the drop kerb in Friars Close as Traffic Wardens patrol this area
The Centre can be accessed via steps to the main entrance or there is a ramp to the side of the building. A lift is available within the building for patients to access first floor consulting rooms.
There is a Hearing Loop in reception for use by people with hearing aids and the building has been designed and decorated to make it easier for people with visual problems. We have a disabled toilet and baby change facilities.
