Save Money on Hospital Parking

Princess Royal Hospital Car ParkA recent news bulletin on the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital website entitled Parking arrangements at SaTH aims to ensure that patients and their visitors are aware of the circumstances in which discounted parking is available. The whole article may be read here and a brief selection from the useful information found there follows:

“Parking charges at SaTH are still among the lowest in the country, with people able to park for up to 30 minutes without charge, and paying only £3.50 for five hours or more. The 30 minutes without charge is useful for people who could drop off and pick up patients without incurring any parking charges.

“Patients receiving dialysis, radiotherapy or chemotherapy and people visiting hospital for issues connected with bereavement are able to park for free. Anyone needing to attend hospital regularly can buy a discounted 10-visit ticket for £8.”

The Trust’s main car parking page may be accessed here and again, a brief selection from the useful information found there follows:

“If you are making multiple visits to the same hospital during a 24-hour period you have the option of selecting “daily rate” and you will pay no more than £3.50 for that day, rather than paying the “hourly rate” each time you attend.”

“For patients on long term treatment plans or visitors of patients expected to be in hospital for more than 3 days, you can download a form to apply for concession tickets. These are also from the Ward/Department and parking booth. The forms must be signed by a member of the Ward/Department and then taken to the Parking Booths for processing. These tickets are valid for a maximum of 12 weeks. The 10-visit ticket costs £8 and gives a significant saving on the cost of each visit.”
