Car parking

Car park sign

Our car parks at both University Hospital Lewisham and Queen Elizabeth Hospital are managed electronically by automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras, which record all vehicles entering or leaving the car park. Blue Badge holders can park for free for four hours but must register their vehicle at reception areas each time you park.

The Trust has worked with parking management firm Wise Parking to introduce upgraded parking payment machines to our car parks. Drivers can pay using a mobile phone-based app – PayByPhone – which enables you to extend your parking time from wherever you are. Alternatively, you can pay at the machine on leaving – simply enter your registration and it will tell you how much to pay.

Signs in all our car parks show the terms and conditions of parking for that specific area. Please make sure you read and comply with the signs, otherwise you will receive a parking charge.
