The Genetic Service is in the David Brock Building on Porterfield Road, across from the Royal Victoria Building and in front of the main Out Patient Building.
Entry is through the blue door at the Crewe Road end.

By bus


The following Lothian buses  go to the Western General Hospital via the city centre.

19*, 24, 29*, 37*, 38, 47, 113* 

*also serves Princes St. East End and Waverley railway station

38 also serves New Royal Edinburgh Infirmary

Most of these buses stop on Crewe Road South close to the entrance to the hospital, while services 38 and 113 stop within the hospital grounds next to the Anne Ferguson Building.


By car

We are close to the main patient / visitor parking at Car Park 1:  Enter the hospital from Crewe Road South at the Porterfield Road Entrance "C".  As there is restricted parking in the hospital it can be difficult to find a parking space, especially at peak times (8.45am-3pm Monday to Friday). The nearest on street paid parking is in Carrington Road. You may find it easier to get the bus or be dropped off at the hospital by car or taxi.
