Please note that the Assessment Centre is located on the Mezzanine Level. The Centre can be accessed by lift but if an emergency evacuation of the building is required such as a fire alarm, the lift cannot be used. There are 12 steps to the ground floor. If you think that you would have difficulty going down the stairs unaided in the event of an emergency, please ring the Appointments Helpdesk number on the accompanying letter at least two days before your appointment date so we can make alternative arrangements for you.
