Car Parking

Car parking is free for people with a valid "blue badge".

There are drop off zones near the main entrance, maternity, Woodcroft Road entrance and day surgery. There are two free 30-minute parking bays behind the Day Surgery Unit (DSU). Please ask a member of staff if you need more information on car parking.

All other car parking is charged at the following rates. 

Up to 1 hour £2.00

1-4 hours £4.50

4-6 hours £6.50

6-8 hours £8.50

8-24 hours £15.00

Please bring small change with you for the pay and display machines and be ready to enter your car registration number. We also accept debit/credit card payments at our parking machines.  

If you are visiting someone who is seriously ill and likely to be in hospital for a long time, please speak to the nurse in charge of the ward who can make arrangements for you to obtain a weekly permit at a cost of £8.50. 

Special permits are also available for families of children attending the Dolphin Unit and birth partners of women in labour. 

There are separate arrangements handled on a case by case basis for people with long term conditions such as cancer and those who are delayed due to clinic overruns. 

These charges are in line with neighbouring NHS Trusts and on-street parking. 

Most of the money we raise from car parking is spent on security and managing the car park and also ensuring it is kept in good condition for users.

Any remaining revenue is invested patient services.
