Trust Introduces New Long Term Parking Concessions
Blue badge holders and patients who regularly attend appointments for long-term conditions will be allowed to park for free at Mid Cheshire Hospitals sites from Saturday 1 August under new long term concessions introduced by the Trust.
Parents of sick children staying overnight at Leighton Hospital will also be entitled to free parking.
Signage located across the Trust will provide information to patients and visitors on the process to obtain the new concessions where they are eligible.
They will be available in addition to the Trust's existing concessions -- Which? Magazine has previously named Mid Cheshire Hospitals as being in the top six in the country due to offering the following:
Free parking for Renal patients
Free parking for cancer patients receiving treatment
Free parking for the visitors of patients on the palliative care pathway
Research patients and Trust Members also receive free parking for related events
Free parking for volunteers.
Parking charges for all other patients and visitors to Leighton Hospital and Victoria Infirmary will be reinstated on 1 August following their temporary suspension during the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to low numbers of visitors during the peak of the pandemic, charges and restrictions were suspended to enable our staff to park for free in patient car parks located closer to the buildings.
As we are now working to restore our normal services, we are reinstating designated patient car parks and associated charges.
Tariffs for car parking, which have not changed since 2008, are set to ensure the cost of maintaining and improving parking and security do not impact on finances allocated for patient care.
