Hospital Site Map

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

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.

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

Disabled patients and visitors with a valid Blue Badge receive free parking for the duration of their attendance at, or visit to, the hospital.

How to claim free parking using your Blue Badge

  1. Before driving to the exit take your blue badge and your parking ticket to the car park pay machine.
  2. Insert your ticket and the balance to pay will be displayed on the screen.
  3. Place the barcode on your Blue Badge in the ‘Receipt’ face-up. This will change the amount due to £0.00.
  4. Take your car parking ticket and use it to exit the car park.

Register for easy access

You can register for free parking with the Car Parking team by providing a copy of your Blue Badge which includes, the barcode, expiry date and name along with a car registration (you can record a maximum of two registrations, with one vehicle on-site at any one time).  To register your badge please email the details to

If you require any further assistance please see the Security Team (located at Main Reception), or call 01226 431837.

Whilst all of the car parking pay-stations are located at key entrances to the hospital, we appreciate this may be difficult for users with mobility issues. To avoid unnecessary journeys to and from vehicles, Blue Badge owners may display their clock-dial disc in their vehicle, (which is usually used to indicate arrival time), and take their blue badge with them to use at the pay-machine.

The time clock-dial is not relevant at the hospital, as free parking for Blue Badge holders is not time limited – it is merely an indication to us the vehicle is owned by/being used by a Blue Badge holder.

A parent or guardian of a child or young person, under 18 years of age, who is admitted as an inpatient at hospital overnight will also receive free parking for the duration of their stay, limited to 1 vehicle while visiting their child.

Parking will be provided free to all outpatients who attend hospital for an appointment at least 3 times within a month and for an overall period of at least 3 consecutive months (i.e. a minimum of 9 attendances). A ‘month’ is defined as a period of 30 days. Valid car parking receipts will be required for any claims which are made through our Cashier’s office.

Please be aware you cannot claim for parking costs as a frequent outpatient attender if you claim already claim them as part of the Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme (HTCS) for receiving any of these benefits or allowances:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Working Tax Credit (WTC) with Child Tax Credit (CTC)
  • WTC with a disability element or a severe disability element
  • CTC but you’re not eligible for WTC
  • Pension Credit Guarantee Credit
  • Universal Credit and meet the criteria

Claiming twice will be treated as NHS fraud
