Our services are based on two hospital sites and several locations within the community in south east London.
Please check that your appointment or stay is at Guy's Hospital.
Guy's does not have an accident and emergency (A&E) department. The nearest A&E is at St Thomas' Hospital.
Reduced access to Guy's Hospital
Due to the building of the new Cancer Centre at Guy's Hospital, there will be reduced access on Great Maze Pond between Snowsfields and Borough Wing until the autumn of 2016 (PDF 42Kb).
Traffic lights will be in operation at all times on Great Maze Pond. Marshals will also be on hand during working hours, Monday to Friday 8am until 6pm.
Pedestrian access from Snowsfields will be restricted to one side of Great Maze Pond and an alternative accessible route is signposted. Access to Guy's Hospital from St Thomas Street is not affected.
There will be an increase in construction traffic around Guy's Hospital so please allow extra time for your journey.
The nearest stations are:
- London Bridge - Northern and Jubilee lines (five minutes' walk)
- Monument - District and Circle lines (15 minutes' walk).
Please be advised there is no step-free access to or from the Jubilee line at London Bridge Tube station until mid-August 2015.
For an accessible route to the hospital, use the Northern line to London Bridge instead.
Alternatively, use the Jubilee line to Waterloo or Bermondsey stations and take local buses, or speak to a member of London Underground staff.
