Please complete our Accessibility/ Travel Survey

The purpose of this survey is to collect information about how visitors to NLAG hospitals access the sites in order to inform the new revision of the NLAG Travel Plan, which aims to promote more sustainable travel choices for NLAG employees and visitors.

As there is limited parking on site we encourage our staff, patients and visitors to use our popular Park and Ride service or public transport where possible as this helps ease congestion. There is a dedicated hospital shuttle bus and we are close to the town’s train station.

By road

If you are dropping someone off at the hospital we have allocated spaces where you can do this, there are four just outside the main entrance and two next to the outpatients entrance on Cliff Gardens. Please note these are 10 minute only drop-off zones.

Park and Ride service

Parking a headache? Take the Park and ride service for 80p each way or £1.40 return. Park your car for free in the top two floors (3 and 4) of the Parishes multi-storey car park in the town centre and catch the Hornsby n.o 9 bus from stand N in the bus station. Buses run from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday with a final bus leaving the hospital at 8pm. The service also operates on Saturdays. Please see timetable below.

Please note: patients and visitors need to register their car registration number with the shopmobility office on the ground floor of the Parishes car park – this opens at 8:30am. If you have an early hospital appointment and need to register your vehicle details with Shopmobility before 8.30am you can either:

  • Email with your name, vehicle registration number, appointment time and contact telephone number on the day of your appointment or the day before
  • Phone the Shopmobility office on 01724 297418 to give staff your name, vehicle registration number, appointment time and contact telephone number the day before your appointment

Visitors who park in the car park after 8.30am must sign in the visitor’s book in the Shopmobility office.

Disabled users can park anywhere within the Parishes car park and do not need to register with the shopmobility office.

The buses stop outside the outpatients entrance on Cliff Gardens and the main entrance on Church Lane. Normal concessions apply: bus passes accepted and under 5s are free.
