Visiting Patients in The Matthew Hay Building

On entering ARI from Foresterhill Road follow the signs for the Green Zone down the main staircase to the main hospital corridor. Continue along the main corridor until directed right to The Matthew Hay Building. Use the lifts or stairs to ascend to other levels. These lifts and stairs are the only access for visitors. There is a separate set of lifts dedicated to the transport of patients. Staff not involved in the movement of patients will also use the visitor lifts.
To access The Matthew Hay Building from the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary Yellow Zone, use the lifts or stairs to descend to the basement of Phase 2. Follow the signs for the Green Zone and The Matthew Hay Building to the visitor lifts and stairs.
