Parking at Sunderland Royal Hospital

The new multi-storey car park at Sunderland Royal Hospital will open on Saturday, 1 November 2014.

This new facility will mean the total number of parking spaces available on the site is now over 1700 and we hope will mean stress free parking for our patients who are coming to the hospital for treatment.

Over the last 10 months, during the build, there has been increased pressure on the remaining parking spaces, and we would like to thank all our patients, staff and members of the public for bearing with us during this time.

The attached leaflet details all the available parking areas available on the site.
