Parking charges set to return at Grimsby and Scunthorpe hospitals

Parking charges for patients and visitors are to be reinstated at Grimsby and Scunthorpe hospitals.

The Government introduced free parking at hospitals due to Covid-19, with the barriers to Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Trust (NLaG) car parks left open.

However from Sunday, November 1, parking charges for patients and visitors are to be reintroduced in line with national guidance. Car parking will remain free of charge for staff.

Changes to hospital visiting in wake of Covid-19 come into force today

As before, concessions are available for longer visits and exemptions remain in place for:

Cancer patients attending for a course of treatment;

Parents staying with a sick child overnight;

Parents, guardians or next of kin staying for prolonged visits with a patient who is at the end of their life.

Blue badge holders pay a fixed fee of £2 regardless of how long they stay.

The hospitals operate an ANPR system so you’ll need to know your number plate when you go to the pay station.

At Grimsby’s Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital there are 316 spaces available for patients and visitors on site, with the main car park located directly outside the main entrance to the hospital.

In Scunthorpe there are 279 spaces for patients and visitors with three main car parks – two on the Church Lane side of the hospital and another in front of emergency centre / outpatients departments on the Cliff Gardens side.

Car park charges are: Blue badge holders, £2 fixed tariff; 0-1 hours £2.40; 1-2 hours £3.90; 2-4 hours £4.40; 4 hours plus £4.90. Concessions: Day ticket £4.90; Weekly ticket £24.80; Long-term ticket after first seven days £4.90.
