Car parking at Scunthorpe hospital
As parking on-site is limited we encourage staff, patients and visitors to use our popular Park and Ride service or public transport where possible.
When you arrive you’ll see electronic signs directing you to a car park with available spaces. 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.
As a result of the work being done to build our exciting new Emergency Department development, there is currently less parking provision available on site.
The first step is to build the new single-storey decked car park on the public car park outside the renal unit (car park three) on the Church Lane side of the site.
However, in order to do this safely, we have closed off this area, which means there will be fewer public spaces on the site until the new car park is finished in July.
As part of our work to make our hospitals more environmentally friendly, we also need to temporarily close 23 parking spaces outside Butterwick House.
Unfortunately, there will be fewer spaces available for patients and visitors to use during the construction phase and, as a temporary measure, we are encouraging all those who are able to make alternative transport arrangements to do so.
We appreciate that this will not be possible for some patients and please don’t put yourself at risk.
However, if you can leave the car behind and take a bus, taxi or get a family member to drop you off, we’d be very grateful.
At Scunthorpe, there is also the option of using our Park and Ride service, which takes the stress out of trying to find a space and takes you right to the door of the hospital.
If your medical condition prevents you from using public transport, you may be eligible for ambulance transport.
This must be booked four weeks in advance of your appointment by calling the Thames Group on 0300 3033176 and staff will ask you a series of questions to ensure you’re eligible.
We know it’s not ideal but we hope you agree it will be worth it when our new Emergency Departments are finished – and that you’ll join us in helping to ensure priority is given to those who need it most.
We also ask that you consider our neighbours and avoid parking on residential streets around the hospital site. Thank you.

New concession for those who attend frequently

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. You can park on any of the floors in the car park apart from the internal ground floor level.

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.
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.
