Map and directions
Salford Royal is about four miles west of Manchester city centre and is easily accessible by public transport. We do have two car parks but they are very busy; you may have a long wait at peak times. Wherever possible please use public transport, come by bike or walk, Exercise reduces the risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers. It makes you feel better too.

Patient appointment letters will tell you the name of the department/ward you will be attending, along with the building and the level/floor this is located on.
The Main Outpatients Department is located near the Main Entrance in Hope Building. The lifts and stairs leading to Main Outpatients are opposite the café and M&S Simply Food.
