Parking is improving at the hospital

Date: 21/08/2019

From early September 2019, Milton Keynes University Hospital is introducing a new parking system that will help to improve parking across the hospital site thanks to automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), new barrier equipment and enhanced signage.

Working in partnership with parking company Saba, the changes will help to cut down queues at the barriers and offer visitors increased payment options.

Patient and visitors are able to use the following car parks: A, B, C, D and E. The car parks have been located across the whole site to minimise the distance required to reach your intended destination. Disabled parking is available in all.

Please take care when using the roads around the hospital. Be mindful of people crossing the roads at zebra crossings around the site. The speed limit around the hospital is 20mph.

The most appropriate parking for each zone of the hospital is outlined below.

  • Car Park A – Purple Zone
  • Car Park B – Green Zone and Blue Zone
  • Car Park C – Orange Zone and Blue Zone (drop off only)
  • Car Park D – Yellow Zone and Purple Zone
  • Car Park E – Urgent Care Centre

Visitor car parks will have ANPR barriers. To enter the visitor car parks, a ticket must be taken at the barrier. Please take your ticket with you – do not leave the ticket in your vehicle. If you are dropping off a relative in any of our car parks and return to your vehicle within 15 minutes, the same ticket obtained on entry will allow you to exit through the barriers at no charge.

The costs for parking remain significantly lower than neighbouring hospitals and town centre car parks. The charges from 1 September 2019 are as follows:

Duration Charge
0 – 15 minutes Free
15 mins – 1 hour £2.70
1 – 3 hours £3.70
3 – 6 hours £4.80
6 – 8 hours £5.30
8 – 24 hours £10.60
Lost ticket £10.60
Weekly ticket £20.00

Upon leaving the hospital building please pay for your parking at one of the Pay on Foot Pay Stations (by cash, card or contactless payment) by inserting your ticket and entering your vehicle registration. The payment machines are located in the following areas:

  • In the new main entrance (opposite Subway)
  • Outside A&E
  • Lobby in pedestrian entry / exit to multi-storey car park
  • Outside cardiology (Car Park B)

When you have paid for your ticket, return to your car and drive to the nearest exit. When you get to the barrier, the camera will recognise your number plate and rise. Help buttons are located on all entry / exit barriers and payment machines.

Disabled parking

Parking for blue badge holders is free. Dedicated disabled parking areas are located:

  • On level 1 (ground) and level 2 of the multi-storey car park
  • Outside Ward 24

  • To the front and side of Eaglestone Health Centre

Disabled blue badge holders parking in the multi-storey car park should scan their blue badge at the exit barrier to exit. Those parking in Car Park B should should scan their blue badge at the payment machines to validate their ticket for free exit. All other disable parking spaces are not behind barriers.
