The main hospital in Nottingham is the Queens Medical Centre or QMC, located in the Lenton area on the outskirts of Nottingham City Centre. The QMC opened in 1977 and is the largest hospital in the United Kingdom and the largest teaching hospital in Europe. The QMC has over 1300 beds and employs over 6000 staff.
Everyday thousands of people make the journey to and from the QMC from all over Nottingham. There are several bus routes that pass the hospital and even a dedicated bus that runs from the city centre to the hospital. Booking a taxi to get to and from the hospital is a great way to make sure you arrive on time. Average taxi fares from the city centre to the hospital would be around £8 depending on the time of day and taxi firm.
