The main entrance is not level, and is accessed via a small set of steps from Banbury Road, and these have no handrail or nosings.  The entrance door at the top of these steps is manual, with large vision panels.  Level access is available using the ramp which leads from the car park, on the left hand side of the entrance.  This ramp is slightly narrow, although it’s suitable for most wheelchairs.  Once you go down the ramp head past the steps towards the garden area where there is an intercom on the left-hand side which you can use to contact reception.  If you are a visitor, someone from reception will come and guide you into the building. There is a stair lift down a small set of steps.  The door is manual, and opens inwards, leading to the basement area.  Once inside, visitors will then have to take another stair lift to the ground floor to reach the reception area. This stair lift is long and rather slow and in order to access the platform, the user will end up going facing down the stairs.
