How to find us
All our services except pre-assessment are located in the Bexley wing at St James’s. It is number 44 on this downloadable site plan.
There are two main entrances to Bexley Wing. The entrance from the multi-storey car park brings you in on the ground floor which is level 0. The entrance from Beckett Street brings you in on level -2 which is two floors below the ground floor. This is the entrance you would use if coming by bus. There are stairs and a lift in the lobby to take you up to Level 0.
Once on Level 0, there are three banks of lifts in Bexley Wing. The walls around each lift have been painted blue, green or red to help with directions.
From the ground floor (level 0) of Bexley Wing, take the green lift, which is located next to the big open staircase, up to level 1. Turn right out of the lift and walk down the corridor until you see the doorway on your left marked ‘Oncology Out-patient Suites 1and 2’. This is just before the vending machines. Go through the doorway, turn right and walk to the far end of the corridor. You can ‘self-check-in’ using the computer on the desk or speak to the clerk at the same desk to register that you have arrived. You can then take a seat in the waiting area.
