In March 2020, the hospital announced that parking would be made free to staff, essential visitors and contractors.

Parking has remained free ever since, but parking charges will apply as of October 11.

A spokesperson said that the trust “regret” to have to charge for parking, but “the cost of security and maintenance for our car parks means we have to make a modest charge so we don’t divert money away from patient care”.
