Patient/visitor car parks are open and normal charges apply, but space is limited and there is no on-street parking nearby. If you need to wait in your car for a period of time, please make sure you have water to drink, especially in hot weather.

There is free motorcycle parking on the Churchill site at the main entrance.

There are patient and visitor car parks at the Churchill Hospital, including directly outside the Oxford Cancer Centre (car parks 1 and 2). All patient and visitor car parks are numbered, but staff car parks are prefixed with a letter.

There is ANPR in all visitor car parks. The first 30 minutes are free. This is to enable visitors plenty of time to find a space or wait for one to become free in busy times.

Payment is by card or phone only. If you do not have a card, please pay online via the Simple Intelligent Parking website up to 24 hours after departure.

If you need to pay with cash, please go to the Car Parking Office before you leave.

If you leave without paying, or do not pay online within 24 hours, you will receive a Parking Charge Notice (PCN).

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.
