From Monday 12th April, the visitor’s car park at The North Mid Hospital will be changing to pay on exit. This means that motorists will be required to pay for parking as they exit the car park, rather than on arrival.
Payment machines will be located with the main reception, maternity and A&E and a pay by phone facility will be available via the app JustPark.
Car park users will be able to follow the simple steps below:
- Enter the car park and park in a designated parking space
- Before exiting the car park, proceed to one of the payment machines located in the main reception, maternity or A&E or pay via JustPark (see JustPark signage for payment details)
- Enter your vehicle registration number into the payment machine or JustPark app and pay for the full duration of the stay
- Exit the car park within 30 minutes of payment confirmation
You can read more about these changes on The North Mid Hospital website.
Are you a blue badge holder?
If you are a Blue Badge holder or entitled to free parking, please visit the main reception to register your Blue Badge. Blue Badges must be registered with the corresponding vehicle before exiting the car park.
Carers’ parking information
The North Mid were the first hospital to introduce a carers’ passport scheme for carers who support vulnerable patients while they are in hospital and visit regularly. The passport enables carers to visit outside normal visiting hours and to pay £1 a day for parking. The passport also entitles carers to free drinks while they are on the ward.
Carers of vulnerable patients who haven’t been offered a carer’s passport by ward staff, can obtain one by speaking to the ward manager. Carers’ passports are valid for seven days and must be renewed weekly, if the patient is in hospital for longer.
£1 a day parking for carers’ passport holders
To obtain a £1-a-day carers’ passport parking ticket, passport holders should first park in the main car park. Then go to the hospital cashier’s office (podium, level 0, near the main entrance) to buy a pass for up to seven days.
Please take your current carers’ passport and care number plate details with you. On receipt of your parking pass, please return to main reception and ask the receptionist to put its details onto the parking system. The process takes a few minutes, so please allow some extra time.
