Wheelchairs

For those who need wheelchairs they are available at various locations around the hospital including the main and north entrances and in the multi-story car park. Patients have to insert a pound coin to release the wheelchair from a 'train' of other wheelchairs. You will be able to reclaim that pound coin when you return the wheelchair to the 'train', thus there is no charge to use them.
