The approach road to the John Radcliffe is on Headley Way.
From the Woodstock Road, travel north for one mile, then right (Moreton Road) following the 'H' and 'A&E' and 'John Radcliffe' signs, along Marston Ferry Road to Headley Way.

There are some free of charge disabled parking bays:
- Opposite the main entrance on Level 2
- By the West Wing / Children's Hospital entrances
- Outside the Women's Centre
Blue Badge holders must observe the code of the Blue Badge Scheme. The John Radcliffe Hospital is a private site and therefore Trust parking restrictions apply to all drivers.
