To help you get to your appointment quickly and easily download our simple guide to finding your way.


This is a simple guide with maps that's also available to pick up from:

  • the main reception desk

We advise you to:

  • please bring your appointment letter with you. It will give you directions to a particular hospital site, hospital wing, lift (or stair) lobby and floor number
  • when you arrive at the right wing, you should head for the lift or stairs, these will be clearly labelled, to reach the floor shown in your appointment letter
  • when you get to the right floor, you will see signs that will guide you to the right department.

If you are sent to another wing for tests or treatment, it's always best to go back to the ground floor to find your way there.
