Before you arrive at the hospital please check the location of your appointment.
For those who need wheelchairs they are available at various locations around the hospital including the main and north entrances and in the multi-story car park. Patients have to insert a pound coin to release the wheelchair from a 'train' of other wheelchairs. You will be able to reclaim that pound coin when you return the wheelchair to the 'train', thus there is no charge to use them.
