All departments, wards and other functions off the main corridors have been given a unique location code which is made up of the zone, floor level and location number e.g. H304: H (zone) 3 (level) 04 (location number). The ground floor of the Eye Hospital is Level 0. The names of locations have been updated but the physical locations of clinics and areas have not changed. Your appointment letter will state the location code and staff will be on hand to help you find your appointment location if you have any queries. Location names can be found  here
