Shopmobility

 

Shopmobility Belfast helps patients and visitors with restricted mobility. It provides electric scooters and wheelchairs to help people get around the Royal Hospitals and Belfast City Hospital sites. Staff will meet and greet patients and visitors who require the service.

Please watch our video on the Shopmobility service at the Royal Hospitals and City Hospital sites.

Shopmobility is a free service and available from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. To use the service, you must register to become a member. This is a simple process (see below).

You are advised to book the Shopmobility service in advance. A telephone number and email address for each hospital site is provided below.

Staff will try to accommodate anyone who doesn’t book in advance, but we cannot guarantee there will be any scooters or wheelchairs available.

Royal Hospitals site

The Shopmobility service on the Royal Hospitals site is located near the parking spaces for blue badge holders on the ground level of the main visitors’ car park.

There is a route to the main hospital from the Shopmobility unit. From there, a tunnel corridor accesses the hospital. At the end of the tunnel corridor, there is a lift to the main entrance of the hospital.

Belfast City Hospital site

The Shopmobility service on the Belfast City Hospital site is located on the ground floor of the two-storey car park opposite the entrance to the Tower and Cancer Centre.

There is a zebra crossing outside the car park, which you can use to access the Tower or Cancer Centre.
