Case Study: ​Stannah says 'Go!' in a Newcastle physio practice

When it comes to making a two storey physio practice fit for access, a Stannah Midilift SL platform lift was the natural choice for Gosforth Physio & Wellness in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Cost effective and easy to fit, the platform lift has delivered free ranging manoeuvrability to first floor facilities for everyone, including wheelchair users – a must for a profession dedicated to promoting mobility, function and quality of life.

Not only is the Midilift SL compliant with the most recent Part M regulations, it also helps the practice owner, Kevin Kennedy, meet the requirements of the Equality Act 2010. Quick and easy to install with the minimum of builder’s work, the lift delighted from the start:

“Our Stannah platform lift has made facilities on the 1st floor accessible to everyone. We specified Stannah because of their brand and reputation which they have certainly lived up to.”
Kevin Kennedy

Supplied in its own structure and requiring neither a lift shaft nor a pit, the Midilift access lift is ideal for installing in existing buildings such as Gosforth Physio & Wellness.

With panoramic, fully glazed doors and glass structure, the lift contributes to the practice’s peaceful aesthetic. With safety and ease of use as a paramount concern, the easy to use, constant pressure controls, intercom and anti-slip flooring, with a fixed ramp for wheelchair access, make sure the passengers are fully reassured.

Adding value to the practice, the Midilift SL has helped this multi-disciplinary team of caring specialists deliver their best evidence based, holistic, physical and psychological services under one roof.

As with all Stannah lift products, the Midilift SL platform lift is covered by Stannah’s complete lift servicing capability, with continued lift maintenance by the North & North East branch of Stannah Lift Services, part of a nationwide network providing comprehensive lift servicing and support.
