By public transport
Coming by tram
Supertram does not serve the Northern General Hospital. It can be used to reach the Royal Hallamshire, Jessop Wing, Charles Clifford and Weston Park Hospitals, although please be aware that there is still a 10-15 minute uphill walk from the nearest stop (University). We would recommend that anyone who experiences difficulty walking long distances choose some alternative means of travelling to hospital.
The hospital is on Glossop Road (B6069). If you are using SatNav the postcode for the hospital is S10 2JF.
There is a charge for parking, for details click here.
Please be aware that Parking Charge Notices are in operation within the hospital grounds. This is to ensure that ambulances and other emergency services have free access to the hospital at all times. To avoid being issued with a Parking Charge Notice please make sure that your car is parked in a designated parking space.
Parking is limited, so we recommend using public transport if at all possible.
By ambulance or medicar
If you feel that you need an ambulance or Medicar to get to hospital please telephone the number on your appointment letter and speak to a member of staff. Please note that this service is not available to all patients, only to those with a medical need.
