How to reach the hospital by car – directions to our three visitors' car parks.
Finding your way around the hospital
Our hospital has five interconnected buildings: our main building, the tower, Pymmes building, podium and our new maternity unit. There are also some other buildings that stand alone around the edge of our site, like our trust headquarters and our GP blood tests unit.
Finding your way around the hospital is easy once you know how. It's possible to walk between all five interconnected buildings on one level. We call this level 0. You will see "levels" being used on signs throughout the interlinked buildings. Because the hospital site slopes down from the "front", west end to the "back", east end where the tower, Pymmes building and the new maternity unit are located, the external entrances to these buildings are at a lower level known as level -1. The highest level in the hospital is level 8 in the tower. The picture below shows how it works.
The main building, main entrance, outpatients and A&E
The main entrance of the hospital – which most patients use – is on level 0 of the main building. Our main reception is by this entrance in an area known as the atrium and during the day our friendly reception staff will be able to provide directions to all departments. Outpatients reception is also on level 0, close to the main entrance. A&E has its own separate external entrance on level 0, by Bridport Road. Children's outpatients is on level -1. You can reach level -1 by lift or stairs from the main building's atrium. There is also an east entrance to the main building (not shown on the picture below) at level -1.
