How to find the John Radcliffe Hospital

From the outpatient entrance to the Women's Centre, enter through two sets of glass sliding doors then turn immediately right. Ahead of you will be a set of locked double doors with an entry phone on the left.

Press the buzzer for the Parent Education Room, and you will either be invited in or asked to take a seat for a moment. The Breastfeeding Clinic is on the left a short distance down the corridor. There are signs on the wall above the double doors and suspended from the ceiling in the corridor.

There is also a baby changing / feeding room on Level 1: go in through the outpatient entrance, walk ahead until you reach the League of Friends tea bar and the entrance is ahead of you in the back wall.
