There are several car parks on the hospital site but parking cannot be guaranteed.

A Pay & Display scheme operates in all car parks, 24 hours a day, including weekends.

Cancer patients may park at a concessionary rate but must register for this. Registration forms are available at Cancer Centre Reception and on the back of appointment letters.

On your first visit to Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, take your registration form to one of the following offices where you will be given a yellow Concessionary Parking Pass (valid for six months):

  • Facilities Office: 8.00am-4.00pm
  • Car Parking Office: 8.00am-1.00pm and 2.00pm-4.00pm
  • Post Room: 8.30am-12.00pm and 1.00pm-4.00pm

When you park, buy a Concession/Blue Badge ticket for £1 at the Pay & Display machine and display this, together with your yellow pass, on your dashboard. Your yellow pass can be used in any car.

Parking for Blue Badge holders

Blue badge holders holders do not need to register but must still pay to park at the concessionary rate:

  • Pay at the Pay & Display machine
  • Display the ticket with your Blue Badge on your dashboard.

Please note that parking is not permitted on the roads that run through the hospital, even with a Blue Badge.

There are some designated parking spaces for disabled drivers closer to some of the buildings. You still need to pay to park in these spaces.
