Date: 29 January 2023
Following a review carried out in 2020, Isle of Wight NHS Trust has introduced new parking charges for patients and visitors from 3 October 2022.
To help with the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK Government supported NHS Trusts by providing funding for free parking for staff, patients and visitors which came to an end in March this year.
This is the first time in more than five years that charges have increased and they remain in line with other hospitals in the region.
The new parking tariff is as follows:
Up to 1 hour £1.50
1 to 2 hours £2.00
2 to 3 hours £3.00
3 to 4 hours £4.00
4 to 6 hours £5.00
6 to 24 hours £7.00
The Trust will continue to offer a reduced rate for regular and frequent visitors and people with two or more outpatient appointments per week over a period of four weeks.
Parking is free to visitors of long term inpatients (over 14 days) and to disabled drivers (blue badge holders).
Our designated drop off points remain free of charge for up to 30 minutes.
The income generated from parking charges is used to provide a security service at St. Mary’s Hospital and to maintain the car parks across the site. Any additional revenue is invested back in to supporting patient care.
For people taking alternative transport to St. Mary’s Hospital buses 1, 51 and 57 stop on Parkhurst Road outside St. Mary’s Hospital and bike storage is also available.
