Car Parking

Car park sign

The Trust is working with a new parking management firm (Wise Parking) to introduce upgraded parking payment machines to our car parks. To prepare for this, we are installing automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras, which capture vehicle movements and synchronise with the payment system.

The new machines will allow users to pay with cash, card, app or website, up to 48 hours after the event. 

Blue Badge holders will be offered free parking in priority spaces for up to four hours but will need to register their car at main reception.

Signage explaining the new system is already in place at both hospitals.

We will update the car parking pages on this website once the new payment system is fully up and running.

 

Car parking at University Hospital Lewisham

There is very limited parking available at University Hospital Lewisham. You can see the location of the car parks on the maps page.

Parking charges

Standard charges for patient and visitor parking are:

£2 for the first hour and £1 for every 30 minutes after that.

How to pay for parking

From the beginning of May, a new parking payment system will begin operation at University Hospital Lewisham. The new system will be managed electronically by automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras, which will record all vehicles entering or leaving the car park.

Drivers will now be able to pay using a mobile phone-based app – Pay by Phone – 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.

Please ensure you park within the marked out bays – any vehicle not doing this will receive a parking charge notice (PCN).

Free disabled parking

Blue Badge holders will be able to park for four hours in the disabled bays but will need to register at main reception or the Riverside reception each time you park. Please ensure that your Blue Badge is clearly displayed in the windscreen.

Drop off bays

Drivers can stay for a maximum of 10 minutes in the drop-off bays and must remain with their vehicle. If you are there for longer than 10 minutes you will automatically receive a PCN.

Ambulance bays/service roads

If any unauthorised vehicle enters these areas and does not leave within five minutes, the system will generate an automatic PCN.

Please note that the new payment system will also be coming soon to Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

 

Parking at a Community Clinic in Lewisham

There is very limited parking at all of our community sites, and public transport is advised.

How to pay for parking
