Train: There are good public transport links from Sheffield's train station to the hospital for patients or visitors who live outside of Sheffield. You can use this Journey Planner to plan your public transport route to the hospital from the train station.

Bus: The 120 bus runs frequently from Fulwood to Halfway and stops directly outside the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. Many other bus routes pass along Glossop Road and Whitham Road with good access to the hospital. Use the Journey Planner.

Tram: Supertram can be used to reach the hospital - although please be aware that there is still a 10-15 minute uphill walk from the nearest stop (University). We would recommend that anyone who may experience difficulty walking the distance choose an alternative means of travel.

H1 Hospital Shuttle Bus Service: The H1 Hospital Shuttle Bus Service is a public bus service running between the Royal Hallamshire and Northern General Hospitals. The service operates between 6am and 6pm, with buses leaving from both the bus turning circle (at the end of B Road) at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and from the turning circle (outside the Clock Tower) at the Northern General Hospital. The buses run half hourly leaving the termini on the hour and half hour every weekday, with the exception of Bank Holidays. There is no weekend service. The buses travel via Herries Road, Penistone Road, Netherthorpe Road, Western Bank and Glossop Road and will stop, by request, at any stop on the route. The fare for the full journey between the two hospitals is 2, and 1 for any part journey.

Car: Parking is limited at the hospital, so we recommend using public transport if at all possible. If you do choose to travel by car, the hospital is on Glossop Road (B6069). If you are using SatNav the postcode for the hospital is S10 2JF. Please note, there is a charge for parking and that wheel clamping is in operation within the hospital grounds.
