Parking is available for visitors and patients in the Northern Car via a ticket-based system. This car park is situated near the hospital's main entrance. As you enter the car park you are required to take a ticket from the boom gate. When you are ready to leave the Hospital you will need to take your ticket to the validation machine in the main foyer of the Hospital. When you exit the car park, insert your validated ticket into the ticket machine on your right hand side and the boom gate will open. Parking is charged at a fee of $6.00 payable upon exit.
There are a limited number of disabled parking spaces for people displaying their current Mobility Parking Scheme card in their car. These are located close to the main entrance and emergency department. Not all parking spaces are free i.e. those located within the car park require a fee for parking.
Parking signs are enforceable. Hospital Security Staff will issue parking infringements to illegally parked vehicles.

No sugary drinks are available at any SWSLHD facilities, however there is still the choice of other healthier options including water, juices with no added sugar, diet drinks, tea, coffee and milk drinks.
The Healthy Food and Drink for Staff and Visitors Framework does not apply to food and drink options provided to patients in hospital and visitors, patients and staff are also free to bring their preferred choice of food and drinks from outside if they wish to.
The health and wellbeing of staff, visitors and our community is priority for the District, which is why we are committed to a healthy food and drink environment.
