How much does parking cost?
Public car parks are now barrier controlled and we have a Pay on Exit scheme.
0 to 1 hour - £1.00
1 hour 1 min to 2 hours - £2.00
2 hours 1 min to 4 hours - £3.00
4 hours 1 min to 6 hours - £4.00
6 hours 1 min to 24 hours - £5.00 maximum fee
7 day tickets are available for £10. A 7 day ticket allows an unlimited number of entries to any of the barrier car parks on the premises during this dated period. To purchase these please take your ticket to the helpdesk at the main entrance before you leave.
Disabled parking is free for blue badge holders in the bays marked for this purpose. Please ensure you display your blue badge.
Free parking is also available for patients attending for regular treatments such as chemotherapy. Free access temporary permits are authorised by the nurse in charge of your care.
Cars that ‘enter’ between 19:59 and 05:59 inclusive stay free (regardless of time of exit).This is to ensure that night shift workers and visitors can park safely next to the buildings.
Where are the payment machines located?
There are two payment machines in the main car park and one in the Sherborne car park. Look for the signposts.
Where can I get change?
The payment machines allow payment by £5, £10, £20 and £50 notes plus £2, £1, 50p, 20p and 10p coins. There is a cash machine located in the outpatients waiting area.
I tried to pay for my parking, but the machine was out of order - what should I do?
If you are located in the main car park, please find the alternative machine to pay for your ticket. All machines will have an intercom button to allow you to speak to someone should you encounter difficulties or wish to report a faulty machine. For Sherborne users, please use the intercom button. Someone will speak to you.
Why are some parking bays different colours?
Parking bays for staff only are lined in RED.
Parking for visitors and staff outside the barrier system are lined in WHITE.
