Most healthcare settings provide car parking spaces for their visitors, however there are other useful parking facilities for patients and visitors which are sometimes overlooked, such as cycle and buggy parking facilities.
Cycling is becoming a more popular form of transport, particularly in inner city locations and so it is good practise to cater for those who choose to cycle to your healthcare clinic, providing them with a safe and secure area for them to leave their bike whilst they visit your organisation. And, as cycling promotes a healthy lifestyle is makes sense for healthcare organisations to promote it. The provision of cycle parking may also encourage your workforce to cycle too – improving their health too!
Buggy shelters are also useful facilities to have at your clinic. We recently installed a buggy shelter at the Willows Clinic in Chislehurst, Kent and another at Princes Plain Clinic in Bromley. These shelters now provided a sheltered and secure area for buggies to be stored whilst young families visit the clinic.
This can really improve the experience young mums and dads have at your clinic as they don’t have to navigate through doors etc. with a cumbersome buggy, or leave them unattended and vulnerable to theft outside the clinic. Instead they can leave their pushchairs and buggies safe in the knowledge that the buggies are secured in a safe place and out of the way of other people. This can also help prevent buggies blocking up the entrance to your clinic, providing a clear and uncluttered area which is free of trip hazards.
