Pay before you leave (Pay on Foot) Car Parks
Barrier controlled visitor car parks operate using an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system. The number plate of a vehicle entering a barrier controlled car park is recorded. Before returning to the vehicle to leave the car park the number plate of the vehicle has to be entered on the touch screen in the Pay Station. Once the correct payment has been made the exit barrier will automatically lift as the vehicle approaches to leave the car park. Receipts for payment can be requested at the time of making payment.
These pay stations:
- Accept notes and coins
- Give change
- Charge only for the time parked
Pay and Display Parking Areas
There are dedicated disabled car parking areas around the hospital in close proximity to main entrances. These areas operate Pay and Display parking. At the Pay and Display Pay Station, enter the parking period required, pay the exact amount in coins and collect a ticket. Display the ticket clearly on your vehicle.
These pay stations:
- Only accept coins
- Require the exact amount because they do not give change
As the New Cross Hospital site is under increasing pressure for vehicle parking, the Trust therefore encourages patients and visitors to think differently about how they travel and consider more sustainable methods of transport; for example where possible, the use of public transport.
