Getting to the John Radcliffe

Getting around the John Radcliffe

Important: major delays

Major roadworks in Headington are having a significant impact on traffic to all our Oxford hospitals at all times of day.

The work will continue until late Spring 2017, so please allow extra time for car journeys and, wherever possible, use the Park & Ride or public transport.

For live updates on traffic (in all of Oxfordshire) please visit:

Understanding the floor 'Levels'

  • Level LG2: ground floor entrance level for West Wing and Children's Hospital, at the foot of the hill.
  • Level LG1: one floor above the ground floor.
  • Level 0: one floor above LG1, and at the same level as the basement floor of the main John Radcliffe Hospital building, which is situated further up the hill.
  • Level 1: one floor above Level 0, and at the same level of Level 1 of the main John Radcliffe Hospital building. There is an entrance to the main hospital building on this level from the car park, where an escalator leads up to the League of Friends Cafe.
  • Level 2: the top floor of the West Wing and Children's Hospital, and on the same level as Level 2 of the John Radcliffe Hospital main building, where the main hospital entrance and Welcome Centre is located. A link corridor on Level 2 connects the Children's Hospital (but not the West Wing) with the League of Friends cafe area in the main building: follow signs for 'main hospital'.
  • Levels 3 - 7: (main hospital only) take the lifts in the main lift lobby a little further along the corridor from the main hospital entrance on Level 2.
  • The Women's Centre is a separate, very similar building next to the John Radcliffe main hospital building and has a separate main entrance from the car park, also on 'Level 2'.

If you have concerns about where to attend for your appointment, please contact the relevant department.
