Our Patient Travel Office, in the front foyer of the hospital

Note to JPUH visitors - Please be considerate of local residents should you choose to park off-site by taking care not to block garages, driveways and turnings as residents are experiencing difficulties accessing their properties.

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to visit the hospital.

The Trust has a clear car parking policy in place and offers free parking to disabled visitors and those who attend regular outpatient appointments, subject to certain criteria - please visit our concessionary parking page for more details.

We use a number of measures to help frequent visitors, including a discounted tariff for families of long stay and critically ill patients and a 30 minute free parking period.

The income received from car parking is invested in a range of car parking improvements for our patients, visitors and staff. These include security, maintenance and increasing the number of spaces available on the hospital site.

Here you will find details on where to park and how much it costs.

Further information can be found in our parking leaflet.
