The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There is no tactile paving along the edge of the platforms.
Since this is the first station out from Charing Cross, we assume that people entering the station will need the outbound platforms A and C, whilst those leaving will have arrived on the inbound platforms B and D. It is unlikely, therefore, that you'll need to change platforms at this station. If you do, note that:
Alternatively you can use the subway at the far end of the platforms, see the Environs page for details of this subway.
