Parking charges / concessions


In this page

We do charge for most parking at our hospitals. The car parks are run by the Trust and not as a commercial operation. All money raised goes back into patient and visitor services. Detailed information about charges can be found at the links below.

Discounted or free parking

Under certain circumstances, patients or visitors may be entitled to discounted or free parking at our hospital sites. Please ask your ward or contact the Car Parking Offices for guidance.

Regular attendees

Patients who have to attend regularly and frequently over an extended period will be entitled to a parking permit free of charge. 'Regular attendees' are patients attending:

  • Radiotherapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Renal dialysis
  • Transplant
  • Dermatology.

Forms are available from the Ward Clerk or Ward Sister.

The permit allows parking in staff car parks and should be displayed in the front of the vehicle. You can see the car parks on the hospital site maps.

Eligibility is determined by the Ward Manager in accordance with the criteria set out in the Trust's Car Parking Policy and all permits must be signed and dated by the Ward Manager.

Visitors to long stay patients

Visitors to, or carers of, long stay patients (four days or more) may purchase a Weekly Parking Permit. This enables parking at any time in a staff car park for seven consecutive days, including the day of issue. Please check with the Car Parking Office regarding the cost of this Permit.

Eligibility is according to the Car Parking Policy. Forms are available from ward staff. Please take the authorised form, along with payment, to the Car Parking Office or the Cashiers Offices.

Concessions for families of very ill patients

The Car Parking Office can also make special arrangements for families of patients in:

  • Critical Care Unit
  • Intensive Care Unit
  • Paediatric Intensive Care Unit.

Ward staff will complete a Permit Request Form. Please take the form to the Car Parking Office where a special ticket will be issued which will allow you to park in staff car parks.

Only in exceptional circumstances will more than one permit or ticket be issued per patient visited. The permit can be transferred between cars but must be displayed prominently in the vehicle that is parked at the hospital.
