Venue & Parking Information

Approaching the hospital entrance on Belvedere Road, instead of turning left into the main hospital, keep straight on and take the second right – Outwoods Close. There is a one way system.

Go through the barrier and turn right immediately after the building on your right. Continue on the one way system until you reach car park D. The Medical Centre is adjacent to the car park.

An Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system operates at the hospital so you will need to make a note of the time you arrived at the car park and the registration number of your car. You can then enter your registration number at one of the machines around the hospital and pay the required fee.
