There are five Pay & Display machines in the patient/visitor car parks. Park and go to the nearest machine. No change is given, so please pay the correct amount for your expected stay, take a ticket and display it inside the windscreen of your car. Coins taken: 10p, 20p, 50p, £1, £2.

The car parks are run by the Trust, and not as a commercial operation. All money raised goes directly back to patient and visitor services.
