Our location is convenient for the major road, air and rail transport links serving South Wales. In addition, the Heath Park site is very well served by Cardiff Bus and Park and Ride services. Taxis are readily available and can be ordered through us for visitors making their return journeys.


Please note: parking is not available at the Medicentre itself. There is free visitor parking available within walking distance on the UHW site in the designated 'patient and visitor' zones.

Visitor parking is for a maximum of 8 hours. As the majority of our courses exceed this time we encourage those travelling by car to use the Park and Ride service which is free, or use public transport if staying locally to avoid receiving any parking notices.
