Car Parking – Temporary Access Arrangements To support staff during the current times, as of 25/3/2020, we are intending to make our car parks as accessible as possible to staff, essential visitors and contractors. Our car parking will be free of charge until further notice. Please note that this will be piloted initially, and then reviewed monthly to ensure that we are achieving the following: Allowing staff access to as many car parking spaces as possible. Allowing essential visitors access to spaces. Retaining site security. Minimising the impact of car parking on our neighbours. This will be achieved by the following: Immediate lifting of the barriers to Car Parks 2, 3 and 4 – We have a limited number of Trust parking spaces available so please be aware that these spaces will be on a ‘first come first served basis’. Car Park 1 will be allocated to visitors and contractors. If you are travelling to an appointment or visiting by car, please allow extra time to park, as spaces fill up quickly during peak times. Public car parking We have 632 public parking spaces at the hospital. The first 15 minutes of parking is free in most car parks, which is great if you are just picking up or dropping off. The car parks have CCTV and security staff patrol regularly. There are also spaces dedicated for disabled drivers.

The same charges apply, though you will need to buy a ticket to display in your windscreen. Please note that the pay and display machines don’t currently take the new style one pound coins. Parking charges We regret we have to charge for parking at all, but the cost of security and maintenance for our car parks means we have to make a modest charge so we don’t divert money away from patient care. The hospital operates a pay-on-foot system, which means you need to pay at a pay station before returning to your car to exit the car park. There are pay stations located in each of the public car parks, and one near the main hospital reception. These pay stations take coins and notes and will give change. 0-15 minutes FREE 0-1 Hour, £1.30 1-2 Hours, £2.80 2-4 Hours, £4.10 4-24 Hours, £6.90 Weekly charge £10.00 Parking concessions There are lots of concessions for those who need to come to the hospital frequently and if you only stay in one of our on-site car parks for 15 minutes it is free in most car parks. What if I have a problem? If you have any questions or concerns about car parking whilst on site, please visit our security office which is located near the main hospital entrance. Alternatively you can speak to security from any barrier or Pay station via the Intercom button. All Barriers and Pay Stations are fully accessible and comply with DDA, we also have a limited number of spaces that we can reserve for you if you have special needs. If you feel this applies to you, please contact Security on 01226 434948.
