WWL. Car parking concessions.

There is a concession for long term patients/visitors of £2.50 for each and every 24 hr period providing the visitor acquires a concessionary pass from either the security department or the relevant ward and the pass is clearly displayed in the vehicle windscreen.

Car Parking Concession Criteria
Any oncology patient who attends the Trust for frequent regular treatment will receive free parking for the length of their treatment. This criterion was agreed by Macmillan Cancer Support.

Any patients attending clinics at the Trust for a minimum of one day a week for an extensive period will receive free parking.

Visitors of patients hospitalised for 2 weeks or more will be offered free parking for the duration of the patients stay.

The Government has recently introduced new guidance on the provision of free car parking for certain groups of hospital patients and visitors. This means that the following people are now eligible to receive free parking at our hospitals:

1. Disabled people holding a valid Blue Badge, to be displayed in windscreen of vehicle.
2. Frequent outpatient attendees, defined as those who are required to attend hospital for an appointment at least three times within a month for at least three months.
3. Parents or guardians of sick children staying overnight in the hospital.

Outpatients and parents/guardians outlined in points two and three need to request an exemption pass from the relevant ward manager or the security office and display this in their vehicle for the duration of their stay.
