Car parking charges

Parking at St George’s Hospital is limited due to the high demand from patients, visitors, staff, and the need for emergency vehicle access.

Visitors can use the pay-on-exit car park, accessible from Blackshaw Road.

Parking charges are displayed at the entrance:

  • £2.50 per hour
  • £25 fixed daily rate over 8 hours
  • Concessions are available so please ask the staff in the ward or department you are visiting
  • Parking free between 22:00 and 06:00

Card payments transactions at Security Desk only (Ground floor Grosvenor wing, near Marks and Spencers)

The car park is not run as a commercial operation. All money goes directly to support the work of the hospital. Charging for use of the car park is also necessary to reduce the growth in traffic onto the site, and the Trust fully supports the Government’s aim of reducing traffic pollution across the country. The car park is patrolled by parking attendants.

Parking Restrictions: Only staff and disabled badge holders are permitted to park along the hospital’s perimeter road.

Who is exempt from car parking charges?

  • Police and Prison Service
  • Volunteer Ambulance Car Drivers
  • Disabled blue badge holders
  • Volunteers
  • Renal patients attending for dialysis
  • Bereaved relatives
  • Interpreters

Disabled parking is available free of charge to drivers displaying a disabled driver’s permit in:

  • any of the reserved disabled spaces available near the entrances of each of the hospital wings.
  • any white-painted bay on the perimeter road around the hospital. These bays are designated for staff and disabled badge holders.

If parked in the barrier controlled car park the blue badge holder must take the ticket and blue badge for validation to the security desk in Grosvenor wing or AMW reception before they leave the hospital.

If you need assistance on arrival, e.g. a porter, please call our portering helpdesk on 020 8725 2134
