There are several car parks on the hospital site but parking cannot be guaranteed.

There is a charge for parking with a Pay & Display scheme in operation in all car parks at all times, including evenings and weekends. Please ensure you park in a marked bay otherwise you may be issued with a penalty notice. Pay & Display machines do not give change. There is a change machine in the Oak Tree Restaurant near the Patient Affairs office.

Patients attending for cancer treatment are entitled to purchase tokens at a reduced rate. These are available from the iPoint near Cancer Centre Reception and the Car Park Office near the main entrance of the hospital.


Parking for disabled drivers: Blue Badge holders may park in any bay in the public car parks on the site. Blue Badge holders are required to pay to park at Mount Vernon Hospital. The fee payable is reduced for Blue Badge holders.

Parking is not permitted on the roads that run through the hospital.

There are also a few designated parking spaces for disabled drivers closer to some of the buildings. These are opposite the main entrance to the Cancer Centre, outside the Minor Injuries Unit, outside the main hospital entrance and outside the Chemotherapy Suite. A Pay & Display scheme is in operation for these parking spaces.
