Cheltenham General Hospital

The Medical Photography Department at Cheltenham General Hospital is located on the Ground Floor of the Centre Block. If you approach the hospital from Keynsham Road (and enter the car park near Sandford Lido) the Centre Block is located alongside Oncology. Enter the building via the Centre Block sign, turn right and Medical Photography is located at the end of the corridor.

Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

The Medical Photography department is located in The Orchard Centre at Gloucester Royal. We are located on the first floor next to Diabetic Eye Screening. If you come in through the main entrance of the hospital walk through the Atrium towards the Therapies Exit. Once you have exited the back of the hospital the Orchard Centre is located across the road and slightly to your left. Follow signs for Medical Photography.

 Parking charges

The patient car parks are pay and display and it is worth being aware we do not expect your waiting time and appointment to take very long. We suggest you do not pay for any longer than one hour. If this is not the case we aim to let you know as soon as you arrive.


As our appointments usually do not take long we suggest when you book your hospital transport you request ‘Wait and return’
