South Warwickshire hospital and community health provider becomes the latest of over 70 NHS Trusts to partner with AccessAble; the UK’s leading provider of detailed disabled-access information.
South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust has worked with AccessAble to create Detailed Access Guides to facilities, wards, and departments at their hospital sites.
The Guides are 100 per cent facts, figures and photographs to help patients, visitors and staff plan their journeys to and around the hospital, covering everything from parking facilities and hearing loops, to 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 Guide have been checked in person, on site, by trained surveyors.
Dr Gregory Burke, Founder and Chair of AccessAble, said:
“We are delighted to launch this new Accessibility Guide to South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust, prioritising accessibility and patient experience, recognising how crucial detailed access information is for disabled patients, visitors and staff.
I would like to express my thanks to the Trust for championing the provision of hospital accessibility information, making hospital visits less anxious, uncertain and difficult.”
Fiona Burton, Director of Nursing at South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust, said:
“Accessing hospital can be daunting for anyone, especially those who are more vulnerable, therefore I am delighted we can now support patients and visitors by providing this comprehensive Accessibility Guide.
Equipping the public with as much information about our sites as possible helps us to create a positive experience for them, which is really important to the Trust. I would like thank everyone who has been involved in producing these guides.”

It is also available via the AccessAble App which is free to download from the App Store and Google Play, giving you accessibility information at your fingertips during your hospital visit.
The information to South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust joins over 70,000 places already covered across the UK, making www.AccessAble.co.uk a great tool not only for planning a hospital visit, but also a day out or trip away.
