As you enter the Tower Block, turn left and either take the stairs, which are past the cafe on your right, or continue past the cafe until the lifts are in front of you. Take the lift or the stairs to the fifth floor.

If you enter from the main hospital entrance (near the café and WH Smith) head to the end of the corridor and down the stairs or lift to the next level. This will bring you to the Lloyds Pharmacy shop. Continue along this corridor, with Lloyds Pharmacy on your left, right to the end of the corridor and then turn right.
