Notes from this Centre
The Assessment Centre is located on the second floor, located within the pedestrianised area of Union Street, above Select clothes shop and opposite Holland & Barrett health food store. 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. If you think that you would have difficulty going down the stairs unaided in the event of an emergency, please ring the Appointments Help Desk number on the accompanying letter at least two days before your appointment date so that we can make alternative arrangements for you.
