Please remember, all of our hospital sites are smoke-free. This includes outside and in the car parks.
The main car park is in front of the hospital main entrance off Penalverne Drive. There are disabled spaces and dropping off points right outside the entrance.
It is a pay and display car park, run by QPark Limited.
