Southampton Eye Unit
Southampton General Hospital
Phone 023 8120 6592
Access to the department
From 8am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday, and from 8am to 2pm on weekends and bank holidays, entry is through the doors at the bottom of the ambulance slope to the emergency department. The eye emergency department is to the right as you enter.
Outside of these hours, entry is via the main emergency department entrance.
Enter the hospital grounds using the entrance on Tremona Road, turn left, go through the barrier and use car park 8 on your left. There is also a pick up and drop off point directly outside the eye unit, but please do not park here for more than a few minutes.
You can also use the main car park at the front of the hospital, walk through the main entrance and follow the signs to eye casualty. Alternatively, you can walk around the outside of the hospital following the edge of the North Wing, down Tremona Road and back into the hospital grounds. The route is clearly signposted for pedestrians.
