There has been some confusion around parking charges at Croydon University Hospital. There are no car parking charges for Blue Badge holders who park in the disabled bays at our hospitals. However, if disabled spaces are in use, please be aware that hourly parking charges will apply for Blue Badge holders who park in other car spaces on site.
For our patients and visitors using our services, please find some important information below:
What charges apply?
There are no car parking charges for Blue Badge holders who park in the disabled bays at Croydon University Hospital. If the disabled spaces are in use, Blue Badge holders can park in other car spaces but must pay the hourly parking charges.
We try to be as accommodating as possible with several car parks for patients and visitors, and others set aside for staff. We also offer concessions for patients, including those with long-term conditions, who require regular hospital visits.
For more information on the concessions available, and the hourly rates to park at our hospitals, please see our visitors guide
How can Blue Badge holders still park on the hospital site?
We are increasing the number of disabled car parking spaces available at Croydon University Hospital from 15 to 19 spaces in April 2018. This will increase further to a total of 21 when our new Emergency Departments opens later in the year.
All of these will be as close as we can get them to the main entrances of the hospital to make our services as accessible as possible.
Why do we need to charge for parking?
Car parking at hospital is always a challenging issue. Our services are very busy and paying for parking is unfortunately a way of helping managing demand so that more people have the option to park.
Any income generated is reinvested back into our care to further improve our services.
