Car parking is available for patients and visitors to Birmingham Heartlands, Good Hope and Solihull Hospitals; however, at peak times our car parks can become congested and spaces are limited.
*Changes to visitor parking tariffs from May 2017
The Trust has introduced new parking charges on its hospital sites (Heartlands, Good Hope and Solihull Hospitals) from 2 May 2017 which will mean the majority of our visitors now benefit from cheaper parking. These are the first changes to our visitor parking tariffs since September 2013.
On analysing visitor parking habits it was found that the highest percentage of visitors park at our hospitals for up to two hours. Therefore we have restructured our parking charges to allow for the introduction of a new cheaper tariff for those parking up to two hours. Parking for up to 30 minutes also remains free.
We also continue to offer a range of discounted tickets for multiple visits which are available from the hospital parking office.
Standard parking charges for all hospital sites:
- 30 mins – Free*
- up to 2 hours – £3
- up to 4 hours – £5
- up to 6 hours – £7
- up to 24 hours – £10
Please DO NOT pay for your parking until you are ready to leave the car park, as any underpaid tickets will be rejected by the exit machines.
*Drop off or pick up only – entrance tickets allow free exit for up to 30 minutes. There is no need to use the pay on foot machine, simply insert your ticket in the exit barrier.
Discounted multiple tickets
A range of discounted tickets for multiple visits are available from the hospital parking office. These include:
- A 20 exit carnet – £10 valid for 90 days (please note this ticket is only available for renal patients, Heartlands ward 26 patients, patients attending for chemotherapy, and palliative care patients and their visitors). This 20 visit card can be purchased by the patient once in receipt of a signed form from an eligible Ward or Department. This means patients pay just 50 pence per visit, however long they park for (please note that the ticket is non transferrable and can only be used at the hospital site at which it was purchased. Any of these patients visiting one of our other hospital sites for treatment will need to purchase a ticket valid for that site).
Please ask at the hospital’s main reception or the parking office for any further details on car parking.
State benefits claimants
None of our hospitals charge parking fees to those who cannot afford to pay. People receiving certain income-related benefits can park free of charge so long as they bring proof with them and present it at the parking office.
Individuals in receipt of income-related state benefits may qualify for FREE parking. Qualifying benefits must be those where an assessment of income has been made.
These types of benefits include:
- Income support
- Pension Credit
- Job seeker’s Allowance
- ESA – Employment and Support Allowance
Please show documentary evidence and some form of identification at the main reception or parking office.
*HEFT is accredited by Park Mark through the British Parking Association who have awarded us the Safer Parking Award for all our car parks across the three hospital sites.
