Discounted parking

The Trust has in place a range of discounted tickets for patients and visitors to ensure a fair and reasonable charge is paid to park on our campus.

Full details on all discounted ticket prices can be found on entry to the car park, at the pay stations and at our customer service desks situated in the car parks.

To qualify for discounted parking, proof of an appointment will be required. Appointment letters, booking cards and car park tickets signed by the clinic or department, will all be accepted as proof. Please note, without proof the car park operators may not approve a discount.

Non-urgent advice: Disabled parking

Blue Badge holders attending the hospital as a patient or visitor will be eligible to receive free parking for the duration of their stay. The offer of free parking will only apply where a valid blue badge is shown as proof of eligibility.

Short-stay disabled car parking spaces

Blue Badge holders can park for free in the on-road disabled car parking spaces for a maximum of four hours. Please ensure you display your time clock and abide by the car parking rules.

Long-stay disabled car parking spaces

Blue Badge holders parking for more than four hours should use the long-stay disabled spaces available in car parks 1 and 2, which again permit free parking.

Please allow enough time to park and make your way to your appointment.

Frequent outpatients attendees

Free parking will be provided to all outpatients who attend the hospital for an appointment on a frequent basis. This ticket is valid for attendance of two or more appointments in a single 7-day period. Appointment letters, booking cards and car park tickets signed by the clinic or department, will be accepted as proof of attendance.

Parents of sick children staying overnight

Parents or guardians of a child or young person, under 18 years of age, who are admitted as an inpatient at the hospital staying overnight, will be offered free parking, between the hours of 7.30pm and 8am while visiting the child. This will apply to a maximum of two vehicles only.

If you receive benefits

On proof of certain benefits, you may be able to claim back your travel expenses and car parking cost through the Healthcare Travel Cost Scheme.

For full Information and advice, please speak to the staff at the Outpatients main reception desk.
