Travel arrangements

Car parking on the hospital site has been arranged to give priority to patients and visitors, but it is limited.

It may be worth considering alternative means of getting to the hospital, such as public transport or asking a friend to drop you at the hospital and collect you later. We appreciate that these may not be suitable options so please be prepared for a possible wait for a space and perhaps allow extra time for your journey.

Hospital transport is limited and reserved only for those who have no other means.
