Parking at the Great Western Hospital

Posted: May 4, 2016

Advice and information for patients and visitors

We know that parking at the Great Western Hospital can be a frustrating experience for our patients and visitors and apologise for any stress this may cause. 

All our patients and visitors are strongly encouraged to allow as much time as possible for any potential parking and traffic delays when coming to the Great Western Hospital by car.

Patients who find themselves running late because of parking are reminded that our staff will always do their best to ensure that you are still able to be seen.

We are fully aware of the parking problem and are doing all we can within the constraints of our financial position to improve the situation and make it easier for all patients, visitors and staff. 

From week commencing Monday 9 May, we will begin work to extend our staff car park, which we hope will reduce some of the pressure felt by our main visitor car park. This is expected to be complete by the Autumn.

This building work will take place on land next to the existing staff car park and will not have any impact on the roads into the hospital, or any of the patient and visitor car parking spaces.

To reduce the demand on the car park between Monday and Friday, some of our teams are now also offering appointment slots at the weekend. 

We would like to thank local people for their patience and understanding at this time and extend a big thank you to our parking attendants, who are there to help local people park as quickly as possible in all weathers.
