Free parking for those in greatest need

To support the government’s commitment to make hospital car parking free for those in greatest need, we now provide free car parking for:

  • Blue badge holders – blue badge holders should display their blue badge in their vehicle. Blue badge holders who park in a barriered car park can have their card validated for free at a reception desk
  • Frequent outpatient attenders – patients who attend James Cook or Friarage hospitals at least three times per month for a period of at least three consecutive months will receive free car parking. Please speak to the staff on the ward or department you are visiting for details
  • Parents of sick children staying overnight – ward staff are asked to ring security for those parents staying overnight with an ill child and the barrier will be lifted on their exit

Special patient/visitors permit (season ticket)

Special permits which offer reduced rates are also available to other patients and visitors who regularly attend the hospital.

Please speak to the staff on the ward or department you are visiting or go to the general office at the hospital for further information.

Where does your parking fee go?

The money raised from car parking charges supports the significant costs of running, maintaining and securing our hospitals car parks and meets costs in line with increased inflation. Any additional funds raised are reinvested back into the trust for frontline services.
