A GROUND-breaking project to gather information about disabled access to some 500 premises providing healthcare in Suffolk is now underway.
The project - the first of its kind in the UK - is the result of �88,000 investment from NHS Suffolk in the first year.
The DisabledGo project is being delivered by the Suffolk Mental Health Partnership Trust, Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust, West Suffolk Hospital and Suffolk Community Healthcare.
The information gathered through its detailed survey will result in useful, in-depth information about access to healthcare premises for people with disabilities wanting to use them, including doctors' surgeries, opticians, pharmacies, dental practices and community hospitals.
The results will form a user-friendly online guide to be published in Spring 2010 - at www.disabledgo.com - providing people with information on facilities such as disabled parking, toilets, ramps and lifts.
