Car parking on the hospital site is very limited and, between the hours of 9am to 4pm, there is a high demand for car parking spaces. There is one general patient/visitors car park located at Entrance1 at the Main Outpatients Area on Cooley Road.  It would not be unusual to find yourself in a queue of cars waiting for a space to become available in order to enter the car park.

An external management company manages all car parking on site.  All vehicles parked unofficially throughout the hospital grounds will be clamped and a release fee applies.  We advise you not to park your car on yellow lines or on public footpaths outside the hospital as you maybe clamped. This is in the interest of safety and to ensure the flow of traffic around the hospital.

The hospital encourages the use of public transport where possible.
