Car Parking

Improving Parking For Patients At Weston Park Hospital

In response to patient feedback and complaints about limited availability of car parking at Weston Park Hospital we are creating an additional 60 car parking spaces.

Car Park Payment Scheme

From 10th October 2016 a car parking charge system has also been implemented as we believe many non-patients currently use the car park because it is free parking and therefore by introducing the charge system we will be able to improve parking for our patients. This brings Weston Park’s car park in line with the other Sheffield Teaching Hospital sites.

Car Parking Fees:

Please bring change as Pay and Display parking meters, which accept cash only, are now in operation.

Up to 2 hours - £2.50
Up to 4 hours - £3.70

Over 4 hours - £8.40

Overnight stay (from 6pm to 6am) - £2.50

A new change machine will soon be installed in Weston Park.

Pay for car parking by mobile phone App

No change for parking? No problem!

A new ‘pay by app’ option is now available in pay and display car parks across the Trust’s hospital sites. Simply download the Park Indigo app for free from the iTunes App store or Google Play for Android devices.

After creating an account and filling in the payment method, select the car park you are parked in and choose your required parking time.You can extend your parking time remotely from your mobile if you need to stay longer.

The new app will be available to use at the Northern General, Weston Park and Jessop Wing.Download the app here...

 

Disabled Parking

If you are brought into hospital by another driver they are welcome to drop you off outside the department you are visiting and then park in a designated parking area. Disabled car parking spaces are available near the main entrances to all major buildings.

Blue Badge Holders are also able to use the pay and display spaces free of charge, a valid badge must be clearly displayed at all times. Please note that time restrictions for parking with a Blue Badge do not apply on this site.
