Patient and visitor disabled car parking spaces are provided close to the entrances of all buildings on the hospital site - these are located at:
- Main atrium
- Brunel Treatment Centre
Blue Badge holders are also allowed to use parent and child parking spaces.
For disabled parking close to the Brunel Treatment Centre entrance, turn left at the main roundabout, then turn right and go over the crossing and the mini-roundabout, and follow the disabled parking signs to the entrance to the car park on your left.
Disabled parking spaces are not barrier-controlled, and users must display a valid Blue Badge and clock displaying time of arrival at all times.
Charges and maximum stay
There is no charge for parking in these areas, however there is a three-hour maximum stay parking restriction in place, which helps us to maximise the disabled spaces available to patient and visitors.
We are aware that, on occasions, appointments/duration of stay can exceed the three hours; in these circumstances, please give your car registration details to a member of staff in the department/ward you are visiting, and they will make special arrangements with the Car Parking Team.
This can be done prior to your visit if you expect to have a long appointment at the hospital.
If you need a wider space for access requirements, please wait within the disabled area for a space to become available.
With the current restrictions in place, the turnaround of spaces should mean waits are kept to a minimum.
Parking attendants are also on site to offer their support.
If all disabled parking spaces are occupied
If all the disabled parking spaces are full, and you only require a standard-sized parking bay, please park in one of the main patient and visitor car parks.
If parking within the main patient and visitor car parks, please take your disabled badge to the main atrium reception between 8.00am and 4.00pm.
The receptionist will ask to see your disabled badge and issue you with a free exit ticket.
Please then go to the exit barrier and scan the ticket, to exit the car park.
Outside of these hours, please go to the exit barrier and press the help button, and the operator will ask you for your disabled badge number and raise the barrier to allow you to exit the car park.
