Practice Access Statement

Carterknowle and Dore Medical Practice welcomes people with disabilities, and this statement has been developed to address the more common issues that people with a disability may face.

We constantly strive to improve accessibility to all our patients and welcome your comments and thoughts.

We endeavour to treat all our patients with any disability or impairment equally according to their needs, within the restraints of our buildings.
