Car parking

Car parking is available at all three hospital sites with designated spaces for Blue Badge holders close to each of the hospital entrances.

A ‘pay on exit’ system is in operation on all of the car parks and people wishing to leave their vehicles will need to take a ticket from the barrier upon entry. If you leave the car park and return on the same day, you will need another ticket.

The parking charges per visit are:

  • Free for first fifteen minutes
  • Up to 1 hour £2.80
  • Up to 2 hours £3.80
  • Up to 3 hours £4.30
  • Up to 5 hours £4.80
  • Up to 24 hours £5.80

The charges apply to all visitor car parks at Russells Hall Hospital, Corbett Outpatient Centre and Guest Outpatient Centre.

Payment should be made at one of the pay machines located in the Main Reception area, Maternity entrance and Emergency Department area at Russells Hall Hospital, and in the main entrance areas at Corbett and Guest outpatient centres.

All lost tickets will be charged at the daily rate.

If you require a receipt at any time, place your ticket in the machine and press the ‘receipt’ button. If you require assistance at any time press the help button.

A limited amount of free parking is available for patients attending treatment in the Oncology (C4) and Renal departments three times a week or more for an extended period. Cards should be returned for the period of recovery between treatments to enable accessibility to as many patients as possible.  These parking cards are issued following the completion of a request form by the ward, and payment of a refundable deposit of £20 to the General Office who will issue the card, subject to availability. Cards should be returned to the General Office for refund of deposit.

Save money on parking with a value card.

Limited value cards are available to patients and visitors (excluding those attending Urgent Care Centre) who visit the hospital at least three times a week over an extended period. They are available at a fixed seven day fee of £15.00 plus a £20.00 refundable deposit. Value cards provide unlimited parking on the visitor car park for seven consecutive days, but do not guarantee a space.

To purchase a value card, ask a member of staff on the ward or department you are visiting for more information.

Once purchased, these cards are non refundable.

Do you claim benefits?

Patients (excluding those who visit the Urgent Care Centre) in receipt of certain benefits may claim for car parking charges, travel fares and petrol costs. For more information, contact General Office at Russells Hall Hospital.

Please be aware that value cards are subsidised by the Trust and there is only a limited number of these available.

Parking charges apply to all patients and visitors, including those with blue disabled parking permits.

Please note that the Trust operates a fixed penalty scheme to ensure the safe and continued operation of the hospital sites.

In order to avoid any problems, penalties will be applied to all vehicles, including blue badge holders, who park vehicles:

  • On or in a red lined area
  • On a pavement or pedestrian walkway
  • In disabled bays when not displaying the required disabled blue badge
  • Preventing access for emergency vehicles, emergency exits, deliveries and other vehicles
  • In drop-off spaces for longer than the stated time
  • On grass verges or soft landscaped areas

Fixed penalties require the driver of the vehicle to pay a £70 charge (reduced to £40 if paid within 14 days) and are enforced by the Security Department.
