Directions to the Gastroenterology and Liver Unit

Gastroenterology and Liver Unit is on the first floor of the Tower Block at Royal Cornwall Hospital in Treliske, Truro.

From Tower Block entrance

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 first floor.

From Trelawny Main Entrance

If you enter from the main hospital entrance (near the café and WH Smith) you will need to go to the end of the corridor and down the stairs or lift to the ground floor below. This will bring you to the Lloyds Pharmacy shop. Continue along this corridor, with Lloyds Pharmacy on your left, to the end of the corridor and then turn right. Just before the Tower Block main entrance, take the lift or the stairs to the first floor.
