It is advised to come by public transport if this is convenient. The car parks are managed and a pay and display system operates for patients and visitors. Hourly charges are clearly displayed on the payment machine and reductions apply for longer periods.

 

There are 13 parking bays designated for the use of disabled drivers only and disabled drivers are not expected to make any payment for using these, or other spaces if these are full. If you have difficulty finding a car parking space, please go to main reception and ask for them to contact the car parking attendant or security. For all on-site car parking queries, please contact main reception.
