Where do I pay?

Please pay on return to your vehicle for all car parking (see right for charges). The machines will only accept cash payments for your parking. Change is given by the machine. Change can be obtained from car park office on floor C of the multi storey.

Should your visit to the hospital be delayed more than four hours beyond your appointment time, please see your receptionist for a car park discount voucher.

Discounted parking

Discounted parking is available for visitors and patients using the car park for extended periods. Extended permits up to seven days cost £16. Extended parking permits must be authorised and are available from the car park office (on floor C of the multi-storey car park) and the wards.

Alternative parking

  • In the municipal car parks noted on the display board adjacent to the car park entrance.

About the charges

Poole Hospital is a town-centre hospital. As such, we keep our parking charges in line with those set by the local borough for its town centre car parks.

The money raised through parking charges is offset against the cost of operating the car park, including staffing, maintenance and security. Any additional revenue is reinvested in the hospital to support patient care.
