Finding your way around the hospital

Buildings on Salford Royal’s site are distinguished by their name, colour and a symbol to help patients and visitors find their way around. Signage and maps on the site reflect this.  Patient appointment letters will tell you the name of the department/ward you will be attending, along with the building and the level/floor this is located on.


The Main Outpatients Department is located near the Main Entrance in Hope Building. The lifts and stairs leading to Main Outpatients are opposite the café and M&S Simply Food.

Community clinics and health centres

Many outpatients’ appointments take place in community clinics or health centres.
