Directenquiries.com is the Nationwide Access Register hosting information about accessible businesses across the country. Find out about access to the health services you want: this website gives information about whether they are easily accessible.
There are four easy steps to use this site:
- Choose from the drop down menu the kind of healthcare service you require.
- Either enter your postcode or choose an area from the drop down menu.
- You can click on the access symbols to find the access facilities you want.
- Click 'search' to see the results.
You will then see a list of services sorted by the access facilities you need. Click on the location name and you will see a series of tabs. Use the tabs to find routes into the building, navigation within the building and see the results of the access audit.
NHS Barking and Dagenham commissioned Direct Enquiries to conduct a thorough access audit at doctors, dentists and healthcare centres across the borough. The audit includes routes from drop off points to the main accessible entrance plus interactive layouts of the building allowing you to see photos and access information at the click of a mouse.
This website is one of four initiatives short listed for a National eWellBeing Award. It has been recognised as a project that provides a valuable service to the community.
