Car parking at the Great Western Hospital is plentiful but it can get busy during peak times (10.00am-3.00pm).

The Trust operates a green transport policy and we encourage staff and visitors to use alternatives to driving wherever possible.

Drop-off areas are available.

Upon arrival

Please ensure you give yourself time to park on site and find the department or ward you are visiting.

Please bear in mind that during peak times (10.00am-3.00pm) car parks will be busy and it may be a couple of minutes' walk up to the hospital once you have parked.

Visitor car parks at the front of the hospital (North and West), which are barrier controlled.

When approaching the barriers, press for a ticket and keep it safe.

You will need to pay for your ticket at one of the pay-on-foot machines before attempting to exit the car park.

These are located at the North Entrance, in the Main Atrium area, and by the Emergency Department. 

The Visitor ED car park is pay and display; you must purchase a ticket after parking to cover the duration of your visit.

Failure to display a valid ticket could lead to a penalty charge notice being issued.

If you're running late

Please try not to worry, we will do our best to ensure you are seen.

If you are able to let us know in advance - and it is safe for you to call - please ring the number on your appointment letter.

Swindon Intermediate Care Centre (SwICC)

Apart from disabled parking, there is no separate parking at SwICC - patients and visitors should use the adjacent North Car Park.
