Parking at the Royal Derby Hospital

Due to the regular high volume of cars arriving at the Royal Derby Hospital site, you are highly likely to experience significant delays in finding a parking space.  

You are therefore strongly encouraged to use public transport for all journeys to and from hospital where this is possible. 

If it is not possible, you should allow plenty of time to arrive and find a parking space so that you do not miss your appointment. This may mean giving yourself an extra 60 minutes to arrive, find a car parking space and then make it to your appointment on time.

                                      DISABLED CAR PARKING SPACES

 As a Trust we endeavour at all times to provide the best quality services to our patients and visitors and our car parking provision is included in this aim.

In response to the need for dedicated car parking facilities for patients and visitors, we have designated Car Park 3 as being specifically for the use of disabled people, having 64 allocated spaces.

All car parks have a number of disabled spaces therefore in total there are 123 disabled spaces in various locations. Some of those spaces are outside of the car parks and are free of charge, these being located at Entrance 24, Entrance 21 and Children’s Hospital.

For those blue badge holders who have problems using the barriers, special dispensation will be offered to park outside of the barriers. Prior to their appointment or visit, patients and visitors would need to ring the Car Parking Office who would then advise them where to park.

To avoid misuse of the spaces and ensure that spaces are available for those who genuinely need them, patients and visitors will be asked to provide information why they cannot operate the barriers and will also be asked to provide their name, car registration number and disability badge number which will be kept on record in the car parking office.

The car parking office opening hours are 7am to 9pm Monday to Friday and 1pm to 9pm weekends and Bank Holidays.

For all enquiries please ring the Car Parking Office on: 01332 (7)86776
