"Site is inaccessable for wheelchair users."

The hospital site has multiple access issues which make it almost in accessible for wheelchairs if you are arriving from the local area rather than by bus or car. There are very few drop curbs that make it difficult to move around the site and access from the Ashfield school side is not possible from the direction of Evington. This is due to a complete lack of drop curbs. To manage this people must use the zebra crossing on Broad Avenue then travel a considerable distance to the next set of lights then cross again and make the same distance on the other side of the road adding 15 minutes to the journey - all for the sake of a lack of drop curbs.
