Coming into the Hospital

Admission To Hospital In Labour

For your convenience the area at the front of the hospital is a set down area, however it must be left clear for ambulances. You can arrange for your partner to leave you off and then park in the car park opposite. For telephone numbers click here.  When coming into the hospital at night, the main doors will be closed for security purposes.  In order to gain access you will need to press the buzzer to the right hand side of the doors of the main entrance as shown below:


For entry at night when doors are locked, please press buzzer for attention (circled on image as circled)
