How to find our locations
Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust provides services at the following sites:
- Derriford Hospital
- Rowan House (on the Derriford Hospital site)
- The Child Development Centre, Scott Hospital
- Plymouth Dialysis Unit
We also run Minor Injuries Units (MIU), which are an alternative to attending the Emergency Department when an injury is not considered life-threatening, but still requires urgent treatment, at the following locations:
Please allow plenty of time when travelling to your hospital appointment, if you are travelling by car at peak times there may be traffic congestion.
Please consider using public transport rather than driving. There is a public park and ride site located north of Derriford Hospital at the George junction (opposite the George Pub/Hotel). Parking is FREE, although you will need to purchase a ticket to travel on the bus. For the latest information, including timetables and ticket prices, about the George Park and Ride visit the Plymouth City Council website.
If you live close by and are fit, we would encourage you to walk to Derriford Hospital.
Getting to the hospital - Plan for traffic delays
We are aware of multiple roadworks taking place around Plymouth and especially in the Derriford and Crownhill areas. For more information on road closures and diversions, visit Plymouth City Council’s website. Please bear in mind that these roadworks are also affecting bus services in the area. If you have an appointment, please expect delays in your journey and plan in advanced.
Morlaix Drive Improvement Scheme:
Work on the Morlaix Drive Improvement Scheme began in February 2022 and is set to continue for 45 weeks. Morlaix Drive is currently open for outbound traffic only while Brest Road will be closed northbound for the entirety of the work. More information about the scheme can be found at Plymouth.gov.uk/morlaixdrive.
myPTP (Personalised Travel Plan)
The Trust has implemented a travel plan tool called myPTP (Personalised Travel Plan) to help patients, visitors and staff plan their journeys to Derriford Hospital, and encourage people to use more sustainable travel options. This applies to travel options such as walking, cycling, public transport, and cars (single occupancy and car sharing).
This detailed and interactive personalised travel plan can be produced in less than a minute and can be emailed directly to an individual or viewed online.
