Where can I park?

Patients and visitors must park in designated patient and visitor car parking spaces between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. These car parks are clearly identified by blue signage. 

Outside of these hours, patients and visitors can use any designated car park, excluding drop zones. 

Enforcement will be retained for blue badge parking and traffic management (double red/yellow lines, yellow hatched areas, etc.). 


I’m a Blue Badge holder. Where can I park?

Blue Badge parking spaces are located at the front of the hospital site, by the main entrance.


How long can I park for?

Our patient and visitor car parks allow for 4 hours of free parking between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. This restriction is not enforced outside of these hours.  


What if I need to extend my parking?

Patients and visitors can extend their stay by a further two hours by entering their vehicle registration details into one of the touch screen parking terminals across the site. Parking terminals are located within the hospital reception area and within other departments.

Ensure you do this within your six hour stay. If you require a longer stay or have any questions, please speak to a member of staff or contact the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board Parking Office for assistance.


What do I do If I’ve received a Parking Charge Notice?

Parking at UHL is free for patients and visitors, however, there are restrictions in place and parking charge notices will be issued for failure to comply. Our car parks are managed by ParkingEye. If you do receive a parking charge notice and wish to appeal to ParkingEye, you can do so by following the instructions on the notice itself.


Where can staff park?

If you are a member of staff and you wish to park on site, you must apply for a permit. Although you may be issued with a permit, this does not guarantee you a parking space on site.
