How to Get to the Hospital
A map giving directions to hospital sites is available by clicking on the links below:
Parking space can be limited around the hospitals so you may draw up at the main entrance to allow patients to get out. However, you must move your car as soon as possible into the car park. This avoids blocking access for ambulances.
There are disabled parking spaces near the main entrances and wheelchairs
are available in the main foyers and also from the Outpatients Departments.
Please note that there is restricted parking within the hospital for disabled badge holders only.
Disabled parking bays are reserved for those with a disability.
There are regular local bus services to each hospital. Up-to-date timetables for the Fife area are available from Fife Council’s Public Transport Information Line (01592) 416060.
You may be able to claim your travelling expenses. In order to claim, you must provide evidence that you are in receipt of one of the following benefits:
- Disability Working Allowance
- Family Tax Credit
- HC2 or HC3 Certificate from the DSS
- Income Support
- Job Seekers Allowance
- War Pension
If you wish to make a claim, please ask the ward staff to confirm your attendance at hospital on the appropriate claim form. Take this, together with confirmation of your entitlement and bus tickets to the Hospital Cashier.
Ambulance transport can be provided in some cases for medical reasons.
Ambulances are provided by the Scottish Ambulance Service NHS Trust.
Should you require transport to get you to hospital, you should contact your GP to ask if he/she can arrange for an ambulance or hospital car to transport you. (Unless you have been told otherwise by hospital medical staff).
Please do not bring anyone with you in the ambulance unless this has been agreed in advance.
Unfortunately, we are unable to give exact timings of when ambulances will arrive.
In some cases, a hospital car can be provided by the ambulance service if you are unable to make your way to hospital or you have no-one to bring you and you require assistance
