How to find us
WIMAT is located in Cardiff Medicentre, Heath Park, Cardiff CF14 4UJ on the site of the University Hospital of Wales.
We are conveniently situated to take advantage of the major road, air and rail transport links serving South Wales. In addition, the Heath Park site – one of the main hospital sites in Cardiff - is very well served by Cardiff Bus and Park & Ride services. Taxis are readily available and can be ordered through WIMAT by visitors making their return journeys.
Parking / Park & Ride
Please note that unfortunately there is no parking available at the Medicentre. There is a multi-story car park across the road within walking distance, however...
As of 5th June 2018 the UHW site will be operating a new parking policy within the hospital site. Free parking will be available on the UHW site WITH RESTRICTIONS. We do not yet know how these restrictions will affect those attending our courses and would encourage those travelling by car to use the Park & Ride scheme which will be free from 5th June onwards.
Full information on site parking, maps and the park and ride scheme can be found HERE
