Car parking at our hospitals

General information

Parking should only be in the designated public car parking areas.

Parking restrictions on access roads are marked with yellow and red lines to ensure a smooth flow of traffic in and around the hospital. Red lines (no stopping or waiting) are in place outside the Emergency Department and on primary routes around the hospital site. Vehicle speeds are limited to 20mph. All car parks have good lighting and are fitted with CCTV cameras.

Disabled parking

Parking for blue badge holders is available in the following locations:

  • Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB)
    • In car parks A2 and D
  • Heritage Building (Queen Elizabeth Hospital)
    • On Mindelsohn Way (formerly main drive), near the entrance to the hospital and the Cancer Centre
    • Outside the East Block Day Unit on Mindelsohn Way

Free parking is also available to patients with a long-term illness or serious condition requiring daily or regular treatment – e.g. radiotherapy, renal, chemotherapy and regularly attending mental health day patients – who park within the parking areas assigned to them and display the appropriate authorisation.

Disabled parking is free in designated disabled areas only. For free disabled parking in a car park with a barrier:

Car Park D

  • Drive to the exit
  • Press the intercom
  • Present your blue badge to the camera in the barrier terminal
  • The car parking host will approve and raise the barrier

Car Park A

In Car Park A only, blue badge holders who are parked here will need to attend the Q-Park office on Level 2 of the car park to get their badge inspected and their parking ticket validated for free exit.

Please note that:

  • the blue badge does not have to be displayed in the car once it’s parked in a designated disabled area – take it with you and present it at the office on the way to or way back from your appointment
  • the holder of the blue badge should be in attendance to claim free exit where possible
  • if you are dropping off or picking up a patient, the patient will need to accompany the vehicle driver to the office
  • there will no longer be a requirement to use the intercom on the barrier in this car park
  • disabled parking is free in designated disabled areas only

If you have any queries about these changes, please contact Q-Park using the intercom or by calling:
