Coming to a large hospital, particularly if you’ve never been before, can be confusing so we have a colour-coded system: the hospital has six different coloured zones: blue, orange, red, yellow, purple and green.
The majority of patients can access where they need to be through the hospital’s main entrance, the Emergency Care Centre.
On the map only levels two and three are included on the zone map. Level one is what we class as our behind the scenes, including things like linen services, supplies and deliveries.
There are also some standalone buildings that are not connected to the main hospital. These include:
The maternity unit is near the Windy Nook entrance to the hospital site.
The Women’s Health Clinic building is situated behind the Maternity Unit, close to the Tranwell Unit and is closest to car park 2 on the parking map.
Directions to Women’s Health Clinic
From car park 2, cross the road and take the first left to walk around the back of the maternity unit, then turn left to walk down the hill.
The Women’s Health Clinic is the building on the right, which is sunken, below the path and is accessed by a set of steps directly in front of the front doors. There is wheelchair access to the building, by carrying on a little further down the hill, and turning right, and the wheelchair path runs alongside the building back to the front door.
Trust Headquarters (HQ)
From car park 2, walk along the side of the maternity building, then take your first left past Women’s Health Clinic.
At the bottom of the hill, turn right for Trust Headquarters.
The St Bede’s unit is based near the Emergency Care Centre department at the front of the hospital – follow the signs for Elmwood building.
