consultation rooms

i just had a thought. some consultation rooms aren't big enough to comfortably fit in people in wheelchairs (with the door closed behind them!). does this contravene some kind of Disability Discrimination Act? doesn't that mean this percentage of the population are being provided an inferior service? i think this is wrong. why didn't companies think about this when installing the rooms? it demonstrates a lack of care for all types of people who use pharmacies, and considering what we do, it's inevitable that we're going to encounter patients in wheelchairs. something needs to be done, and soon.
