Nuclear Medicine

The Nuclear Medicine Department is part of Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering, and has clinics at both the City Hospital and QMC. The department has four gamma cameras, providing a wide range of imaging tests. Non-imaging investigations (such as Glomerular Filtration Rate measurements) are also undertaken.

Molecular Radiotherapy services are also provided at the City Hospital.

Nottingham is a leading nuclear medicine department, which actively participates in clinical trials and carries out scientific and clinic research. Nuclear medicine research undertaken at the University of Nottingham is also supported by the department.

City Hospital

Nuclear Medicine is at junction P4 of the Physiotherapy Corridor.

Some ‘Pay and Display’ parking is available in Car Park 2; free spaces for blue badge holders can be found outside the Outpatients Entrance. Parking is extremely limited. The much larger Yellow car park can be used at busy periods, but may become crowded in the afternoon. At this time being dropped off or using the Medilink is advised.


Nuclear medicine is in the Medical Physics Department on A floor of the Medical School.

Parking in Car Park 3 provides the easiest access to Medical Physics, although Car Parks 1 and 2 can be used. If using Car Park 3, enter the hospital using the main Medical School entrance. Between Christmas and New Year this entrance will be closed, in which case the Tram Entrance can be used. If using Car Parks 1 or 2, enter the hospital using the South Block entrance.
