Car Parking & Charges


Car Parking Concessions

Disabled Parking

Your parking will be free if:
  • You are registered with us
  • Your Blue Badge is on display in your vehicle

Free parking is available for blue badge holders close to the main entrance and in designated spaces. You must log your vehicle registration number(s) and blue badge details on to the ANPR computer database.

You can do this by coming to the main hospital reception desk with your documents, or call us on 01225 826274 and then show your Blue Badge at reception when you next visit. Each blue badge holder can register up to three vehicles.

You still need to display your badge in your vehicle while parked. If your blue badge has been renewed/replaced since it was originally registered you will need to re-register it to continue to park without charge.

You can park in any of the pay and display car parks also free of charge if you are registered with us and when you display your blue badge.

Concessionary Parking

Parking is free for patients with a valid blue badge or frequent outpatients who have to attend regular appointments to manage long-term conditions (please see list below) and parents of sick children staying in hospital overnight.

Parking concessions are available for patients using these services, including:

  • Chemotherapy (intra-venous, Oncology / Haematology in Chemotherapy Suite or William Budd Day Unit)
  • Radiotherapy
  • Intensive Lymphedema (requiring attendance on 5 consecutive days)
  • Blood platelet
  • Immunoglobulin
  • Iron Infusions

Please obtain details from the department, ward or the Atrium reception.

For blue badge registration, please visit the Parking Office in the main Atrium between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday, or please telephone 01225 826274. You will need the registration of the vehicle you wish to register, along with you blue badge number and expiry date.

Extra concessions for long stays

For visitors whose relative is in for a long term stay (more than 4 weeks), a 50% rebate is available if you buy 7-day tickets covering a period of four or more weeks.

Please present your 7-day tickets or receipts when your visiting period has ended.

You will receive a 50% refund for either your entire stay over 4 weeks or in blocks of 4 weeks. A seven day ticket costs £7.50. Please obtain receipts covering a period of at least 4 weeks from start to finish.

Original receipts must be obtained and presented for the refund:
These will be retained. In all cases, the rebate is at the discretion of the hospital.

Rebates are claimable from the Main Reception Desk in the Atrium:
Monday-Friday 9am to 4:30pm (reduced hours)


Partial blocks cannot be refunded, so please ensure that you have a full 4 weeks before applying for a refund. For example, if the stay is 6 weeks, please wait until the 6 weeks is up before applying for the refund, if you do this at 4 weeks, the 4 weeks will be refunded, but if you then only have a further 2 weeks of receipts, these will not be eligible for refund. Whereas if you collate all 6 weeks of receipts and submit at once these would receive the full rebate refund.
