THE Royal Orthopaedic Hospital (ROH) has joined forces with a leading mobile app to offer better disabled-access information.

App AccessAble has created guides to facilities, wards and departments across the Northfield hospital.

The guides are made up of facts, figures and photographs to help patients, visitors and staff plan their journeys to and around the hospital – covering everything from parking facilities and hearing loops, to walking distances and accessible toilets.

AccessAble founder Dr Gregory Burke, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with the hospital to create vital accessibility information, prioritising the needs of disabled patients, visitors and staff.

“We want our guides to provide the information people need about accessibility, so they plan their visit and feel confident about what to expect.”

Jo Williams, chief executive at ROH, said: “It’s incredibly important to us that we meet the needs of everyone who visits our hospital.

“The information and guides that AccessAble have developed will help our patients visit our trust with confidence.”

The guides can also be viewed at for those preferring to use a computer.
