Car park uses a ‘pay-on-foot’ system: take a ticket when you enter the car park, then pay at a machine inside the hospital before leaving. Payment machines are at the East, West and Emergency Department entrances.

Periods from 10-24 hours are £12; any period over 24 hours costs £25 daily.
Disabled parking Bays are available by the Main and East Entrances and in the visitors’ car park. Blue-badge holders who park in the main car park, will need to pay normal parking charges. Please speak to the car park attendant if bays are occupied and you are unable to use the main car park.
The information button on the car park equipment will put you in direct contact with the attendant. If you are unable to speak to a car park attendant, please park sensibly and safely near one of the entrances, ensuring you are not blocking access and speak to a volunteer on the Main or East Entrance information desks who will be able to help you.
