Car parking

Car park locations

George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust encourages staff, visitors and patients to use public transport if at all possible.

There are three main car parks on the George Eliot hospital site; at the front of the main hospital building, outside the rehabilitation unit at the rear of the main hospital building and outside the maternity unit.

The car park outside the rehabilitation unit is for disabled badge holders only. Anyone parking in a disabled parking bay must display their blue badge along with their parking ticket. There are also parking spaces for the disabled in the other car parks. Patients should be advised that the rehabilitation entrance is closed at the weekend and to account for this when visiting.

Parking for motorbikes is available near the entrance to the catering area at the front of the hospital.

Please do not park cars in areas where there are double yellow lines or No Parking signs. Road space must be kept clear for ambulances and other emergency traffic.

Note: Please leave extra time for your visit to allow you to find a suitable parking space in our busy car parks.
