  • Can you use the tube? The hospital is a short walk up the hill from Archway tube station.

If you do need transport, please tell us about the following:

  • Do you need a wheelchair?

  • Can you walk with help?
  • We have capable and friendly staff who will be happy help you into and out of the ambulance. We have wheel chairs at the hospital should you need one when you get here.

    If you are accompanying a patient

    Carers or companions may travel with a patient to hospital for medical reasons. Medical staff may check from time to time to see that there is a valid reason for the patient to be accompanied.

    If you have transport booked, please think about the following:

    • Make sure you are ready in good time.

    • Please continue to wait if the ambulance is late. The ambulance will be on its way.
