Parking at Lister Hospital will continue to be free until the end of August, after confirmation that government funding for the scheme will continue to this point.
This means that the normal parking charges listed below are due to be reintroduced from Tuesday 1 September.
About our multi-storey
Our multi-storey car park provides 667 spaces and includes 81 just for blue badge holders. You will receive a chip coin token when you enter the car park and will pay on exit for the time stay. Pay machines are available in the lobby of the car park. Make sure you retain your chip coin once you’ve paid, as you’ll need it to exit the car park.

Why we charge for parking
The Trust doesn’t seek to make a profit from parking at any of our hospital sites. Any money that we make from car parks goes back into maintaining our parking facilities.
We believe NHS money should be spent on treating patients. If we do not charge for parking, money intended for patient care will have to be used to provide and maintain parking facilities on the site.
The maximum vehicle height within the main car park is 2.1 metres. Where a vehicle higher than needs to park, we ask them to use the ambulance drop off area on the ground floor of the multi-storey car park. This allows them to use the car park by coming through the barriers (which do not have a height restriction) and take a chip coin to pay for their parking. Those making use of this facility should always speak with the attendants in the car parking shop on the ground floor so they know what is happening and to prevent a ticket being issued wrongly.
We have 81 blue badge spaces within the multi-storey car park. They are located on level 4 and above near the lifts with wheelchairs located close by to help provide easy access . Level 6 of the car park has automatic doors to help those with mobility problems.
Blue badge holders will also have to pay the standard hourly rate for parking at the Lister.
We also have a small number of blue badge spaces available on a pay and display basis around the hospital site, for those who might need to park away from the hospital.
There are some public pay and display parking spaces at the Lister, although the majority of these are for blue badge holders. This is because most public car parking is within the multi-storey car park. There is a pick up and set down point and some blue badge parking outside of A&E. Pay and display spaces are available by Strathmore Wing.
