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.

Pay and display parking

We have a small number of pay and display parking spaces in Car Park 4 and Car Park 5 near the emergency department and the renal dialysis unit. 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.
