Getting to Lincoln County Hospital

Lincoln County Hospital is located near to Lincoln city centre around 10 minutes’ walk from the Cathedral and Bailgate area.

By road

The hospital is situated on Greetwell Road and is clearly signposted from all major routes. Plan your journey by road on Google Maps

If you are dropping someone off at the hospital we have allocated drop off points, located near to all entrances to the hospital.

Please note: These are 20 minute only drop-off zones.

By public transport

As there is limited parking on site we encourage our staff, patients and visitors to use public transport where possible.

The Lincolnshire Transport Helpline provides information and advice on a wide range of transport options including community car schemes and CallConnect.

The Transport Helpline provides advice but is not a transport booking line.

CallConnect is an on-demand bus service that is paid for by the customer.  If someone has a concessionary bus pass due to age or disability then they can access CallConnect free of charge.

For the purposes of the COVID – 19 vaccination programme only, Transport Services have agreed to extend this free to anyone aged 67 and over, regardless of whether they have a bus pass or not.

Patient transport

If you have a medical condition that genuinely prevents you from using public or your own transport, you may be eligible for patient transport.

Living within Lincolnshire

If you require transport and live in Lincolnshire, please contact TASL on 0808 164 4586 who will then check your eligibility for patient transport.

For disabled access information about patient transport please see our AccessAble accessibility guide.

Living outside of Lincolnshire

All other patients living outside Lincolnshire should speak to their own GP practice about their transport requirements. Some GP practices also offer a volunteer driver service to transport patients to their outpatient appointments at our hospitals. Please check with your local GP to see if they provide this service. You can find out who your local practise is by using the NHS GP location service.

The Royal Voluntary Service may be able to help you get out and about with their community transport, including taking you to hospital appointments.
