Supporting those with special needs:
At Hughenden Valley and Chequers Surgeries we have introduced a number of services, systems and adaptations to suit visitors and users of our services of all abilities and needs.
We each perceive disability in different ways.
If you feel that you, someone you care or someone you have concerns for could benefit from any changes to anything we do then please do let us know.
