Car parking at Goole hospital
As parking on-site is limited we encourage staff, patients and visitors to use public transport where possible.
We have 208 spaces for patients and visitors on site. The main car park is located opposite the main entrance to the hospital. When you drive into the car park your vehicle registration number is captured by the Automatic Number Plate Recognition barriers. When you are ready to leave the site please go to the pay station where you will need to enter your vehicle registration number.
In the coming months we will be carrying out extensive improvement works on the site which may temporarily impact car parking availability. If there are any changes, we will post details here and on our social media, so please check before you travel and, if you’re able to use public transport or get dropped off, we ask that you give priority to those who don’t have this option.
Blue Badge holders
Parking for Blue badge holders is now free of charge. If you wish to register your vehicle please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, blue badge number (and a copy of the blue badge) and your vehicle registration number. One registered the barrier will recognise your number plate when you arrive on site and lift automatically when you leave with no charge to pay.
Motorcycle parking is available near to the Pregnancy Assessment Centre by the Main Entrance and on the Cliff Gardens side of the hospital near to Outpatients.
Car park charges
|Blue badge holders||FREE|

In addition to the daily, weekly and long term rates above, some patients may also be entitled to further concessions. Ward managers, or their deputies, can provide patients or visitors with a letter detailing the reason for the concession which will then be assessed by the security and car park team. Criteria for concessions include:
- Cancer patients attending for a course of treatment
- Parents staying with a sick child overnight
- Parents, guardians or next of kin staying for prolonged visits with a patient who is at the end of their life.
Those qualifying for an exemption will be issued with a temporary pass for up to seven days, but in exceptional circumstances the car park supervisor may at their discretion grant a pass for a longer period.
New concession for those who attend frequently
From Monday 26 April 2021 a new concession will be introduced for patients coming for outpatient appointments on a regular basis.
Why does the Trust charge for car parking?
The Trust has to provide parking for patients, visitors and staff and receives no central funding for this. If the Trust did not make a charge, the maintenance costs would have to be paid but would come from monies better spent on patient care.
