Parking at the hospital is very limited, although we will try our best to help disabled patients and visitors arriving by car. There are a number of disabled parking spaces available at the hospital and cars displaying valid, current, disabled badges may also park free of charge in the hospital’s pay and display car parks.
The camera-operated car parking system (ANPR) will record your car registration as soon as you enter and leave the hospital site. Please make sure if you have a blue badge that you have registered your car registration – details on how to do this are below.
ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition)
ANPR records the exact time you drive into and out of the hospital site and compares this to the amount you have paid. If you stay longer than expected you must ‘top up’ by paying the additional amount before you leave.
The car parking system has a grace period designed to ensure that you are not unfairly charged for the time spent finding a parking space or if you are just quickly dropping off or collecting from the site. This grace period is 20 minutes. If you are entering and leaving the site within 20 minutes then no charges will be applicable, if you are on site for 1h 20 minutes you will need to pay for 1 hour etc.
The new system offers a number of payment options, allowing visitors and patients to Pay on Arrival or Pay on Exit:
The charging period for the public car parks are from 8:00am to 8:00pm, seven days a week. You can purchase additional time (if required) at the payment machines or by phone
The current minimum fee is £2.00 (for the first hour) and £1.50 for each hour thereafter (up to five hours).
