Before you leave home

Parking at our hospitals is very limited so we encourage you to consider other ways of getting to us.

Perhaps a friend can drop you off, you can cycle, take a taxi cab or use one of the many bus routes that drop you right on site.

Our hospitals are really well served by public transport and we actively encourage our patients, visitors and staff to use these where possible.

Parking at King George Hospital

Car park barriers are not in use but you still have to pay for parking

The King George Hospital main car park is now operated by automatic number plate recognition (ANPR). This means the entrance and exit barriers are not in use. Cameras record the registration plate of each entrance and exit. Before you leave, enter your vehicle registration to the payment machine, which will tell you the amount to be paid. 

If you leave without paying you will pay a penalty charge.

Blue badge holders

Blue Badge Holders can claim a free permit from the ward they are visiting after you park. You can use this voucher at the payment machine. The voucher contains a code. Enter this at the machine to ensure your stay is free.

If you are a blue badge holder, you can park for free in the dedicated car parks by the main entrance and near the Treatment Centre. You must pay to park elsewhere.
