Main car park at Grimsby Hospital to be closed off completely on 17 May

As work on the long-awaited new Accident & Emergency department continues at Grimsby’s Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital, the main car park will be completely closed to the public from Monday 17 May.

From this date, public parking will be available next to the nursery building, which can be accessed by turning left when coming into the site from Scartho Road.

A spokesperson from North Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust said: “Unfortunately, until the new car park is completed, there will be fewer spaces available for patients and visitors to use.

“We appreciate that this will not be possible for some patients but ask that if you are able to use public transport or get dropped off, please do so and give priority to those who don’t have this option available.

“We also ask that you consider our neighbours and avoid parking on residential streets around the site.

“A new drop off area has been created next to the nursery building to the left of the Scartho Road entrance to the site and the pedestrian access to the building is clearly signposted.

“This area is in close proximity to the new ambulance route so please give way to emergency vehicles coming into the site.”

The new 2.25 square metre A&E building is being built out of the current site, which will be transformed into an Acute Assessment Unit.

The new department is set to include a larger waiting area, a dedicated play area, additional cubicles and a dedicated ambulance bay.

There will also be a single-storey deck public car park outside the main entrance, with an additional 33 parking spaces.
