Parking disruption from January 2014

Parking

On 6 January 2014 work will commence on our new multi-storey car park.  When complete this new facility will mean an additional 350 parking spaces for our patients, visitors and staff.  However, unfortunately as a result of this building work there will be a reduction in the number of available spaces until early September 2014.  Parking for patients and visitors remains the Trust's priority and we have created an additional patient and visitor only parking area.  Staff, patients and visitors are encouraged to use our free park and ride services from either the Stadium of Light, Homebase at Silksworth or the Gala Bingo at Pallion and we have extended these services to accommodate increased use.   Further information and the timetable for the park and ride services can be found in the attached leaflet. 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this disruption.
