The Oxford Blood Donor Centre is on the John Radcliffe Hospital site, next to the Academic Centre.

Save a life - give bloodThere is designated parking for donors only in red bays, behind the Centre, between the Academic Centre and the Industrial Block.

Important - access for pedestrians 2015

Building work is taking place in front of the main entrance to the John Radcliffe Hospital.

During the works, pedestrian access to the Blood Donor Centre is via the road just to the right of the Maternity entrance of the Women's Centre (Level 2).

Walk down the road (downhill) with the Women's Centre to your left. You pass WIMM and the Lecture Theatres, and then bicycle racks to your right. At the end, when you have passed the 'Japanese garden' on your left, please turn right.

The entrance to the Blood Donor Centre is just on the left, under the 'bridge'.

It may help to look at these instructions alongside the map at the link below.
