Updates, News and Events

Building works July – December 2017

 

St Luke’s is currently undergoing some building work in what was the Doctor’s wing of St Luke’s.

During this time St Luke’s will have a greatly reduced parking facility so please bear with us. If patients are able we ask that they park elsewhere or walk/catch public transport during this time.

From Monday 4th September until further notice the reception and waiting area will be down in the community room in the basement, which can be accessed by following the path, found at the bottom of the car park, through the garden to the door and waiting area.

Whilst we are making every effort to minimise the impact on our patients we appreciate that some disruption in inevitable. Please accept our apologies for this.
