Car parking information for all sites

 

Patients and visitors are encouraged to use public transport whenever possible.  Car parking spaces on all sites are limited and cannot be guaranteed. 

If you do travel by car, we advise that you allow extra time to park. 

Please note that all income raised from car parking charges is retained by the Trust other than the management fees and staff associated with parking enforcement. The costs are primarily used to cover the cost of running the car parks (rates, CCTV, lighting, repairs etc) with any residual income being used to fund front line health care. 

The parking tariffs apply to all Trust sites – Queen’s Hospital, (including the Treatment Centre) in Burton, Sir Robert Peel in Tamworth and Samuel Johnson in Lichfield. 

  • Up to 20 minutes (drop and go - for those dropping off or collecting patients) - Free of charge
  • Up to two hours - £2
  • Two to six hours - £3
  • Six to 24 hours - £6

Discounted parking is available for longer periods:

  • Weekly pass (7 days) £8.00
  • Monthly pass (28 days) £25.00  

Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust introduced parking charges for blue badge holders from 1st April 2013.

This information is correct at the time of publishing; however it may be subject to change. For up to date information regarding car parking charges, please see our car park tariff boards.

Please do not park on double yellow lines, restricted areas or outside designated parking bays. Access for emergency vehicles is needed at all times. Parking is monitored and enforced.

ParkingEye manages the car park payment system on behalf of Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and penalty notices will be sent to the homes of registered owners of cars that do not pay the appropriate fee (See parking signs at our hospital sites for more information).

Please be advised that the Trust cannot accept responsibility for any vehicle parked on the site, or its contents. Vehicles are left entirely at the owners’ risk.

Registration scheme for people with a disability or limited mobility.

Following our consultation with users we have introduced a new scheme which enables people with a disability or limited mobility to register with the Trust so they receive a longer period of free parking.

  • Are you a disabled person?
  • Do you have significant mobility issues?
  • Does you mobility mean it takes you longer to get to and from your car to your appointment?

If you’ve answered yes to any of the questions above, please contact us on 01283 511511 extension 5359 to discuss how the Trust can support you with your visit.

Please have your Blue Badge number to hand when you call.
