OPD car park

Please note: we are making some improvements to our car parks between January and April 2017.  We plan to keep disruption to a minimum but we recommend that during this period you allow more time to find a parking space, or travel to the site by public transport .  You can read more about the works here.

General information

There are two main car parks at the hospital. Car Park P3 (formerly the West Car Park) can be accessed by turning left at the top of the drive/ main entrance. Car Park P1 (Outpatients) can be accessed by turning right at the top of the drive/ main entrance.

Please note Car Park P3 is not located near to the lifts, therefore if your ward is on the upper level (Zone A or B) and you require the use of a lift we recommend parking in Car Park P1 (outpatients).

Concessionary Permits

A reduced price concessionary permit is obtainable for relatives of patients who are likely to be in hospital for stays of longer than a week. Forms are available from the relevant ward or by clicking here. The completed should be signed by the ward manager/ senior nurse and taken to the car park kiosk situated in Car Park P3 of the hospital.

The opening times for the kiosk are: Monday to Friday, 08.00am to 9.00am and 14.00pm to 15.00pm
(The kiosk is closed Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays).

The price of these permits is £5.00 per week. Concessionary permits are issued for a maximum of 7 days.

Exemption permits are also available for visitors to Intensive Care Unit and Special Care Baby Unit. Patients attending the Richardson Clinic can also obtain monthly permits at the rate of £9.00 per month.

If you are a cancer patient and need a parking permit, you are able to retrieve your permit by taking your appointment letter straight to the car park kiosk. You do not need to go to the ward beforehand.

Please park in a considerate manner; ambulances and buses need clear access to the hospital. If you need help finding a space to park please talk to one of our car parking attendants who will try to help you.

At the back of the site (north side) an anti-clockwise one-way system applies. There is no patient parking at the back of the hospital.
