Important public notice regarding car parking on the Milton Keynes University Hospital site:
From Friday 26 May 2017, the new main entrance at Milton Keynes University Hospital will open. However construction work continues on the development of a link corridor, connection the new main entrance and main outpatients, as well as on our Academic Centre.
As a result parking on site may be disrupted - allow additional time to arrive at your appointment. Please see our improvements page for more information.
Please note - from Monday 27 March, there will be six additional disabled spaces and six additional drop-off/pick up spaces located outside of ward 24. We advise that for clinics in the Treatment Centre you park / drop-off in this location.
Parking at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is available across the site.
Visitor car parks are all barrier controlled. To enter the visitor car parks, a ticket must be taken at the barrier. Please take your ticket with you - do not leave the ticket in your vehicle. If you are dropping off a relative in any of our car parks and return to your vehicle within 30 minutes, the same ticket obtained on entry will allow you to exit through the barriers at no charge.
Upon leaving the hospital building please pay for your parking at one of the Pay on Foot Pay Stations located as follows:
- Outside A&E
- Lobby in pedestrian entry / exit to multi-storey car park
- Outside cardiology (Car park B)
When you have paid for your ticket, return to your car and drive to the nearest exit. Insert your ticket into the machine and the barrier will rise. Help buttons are located on all entry / exit barriers and payment machines.
Due to the construction of our new main entrance starting in January 2017, we recommend that you allow additional time to arrive at your appointment. For further details on these developments, please see here.
Cash, coins / notes, credit cards, debit cards.
For regular visitors to Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, weekly permits are available. Please ask for more information at the security office in the multi-storey car park.
Warden Controlled Parking
From April 2013, Milton Keynes University Hospital introduced a warden patrol service for parking across the hospital site. The company will provide a service with branded uniformed wardens. Fines will be imposed on any drivers who:
- Avoid paying for parking;
- Are non disabled drivers parking in disabled spaces;
- Park on road sides, on double red lines and/or in fire roads. (This has the potential to cause restriction to fire roads and to emergency vehicles, disabled drivers being unable to park in the dedicated bays which are close to entrances and bus routes being blocked by cars parked on double red lines.)
Staff breaking these rules, or parking in spaces dedicated to patients and visitors, will also be subject to parking charges.
The introduction of the warden patrol service will enable the hospital’s security staff to focus on protecting the safety of our staff and patients. The warden patrols will also provide additional security, through both their physical presence, and their radio contact with our security staff.
Disabled Parking Facilities
Please note - from Monday 27 March 2017, there will be six additional disabled spaces located outside of Ward 24.
Dedicated disabled parking areas are located:
- On level 1 (ground) and level 2 of the multi-storey car park
- Outside Ward 24
- Outside Milton Mouse
- At the rear of the hospital
- To the front and side of Eaglestone Health Centre
The disabled spaces formally located outside the main Outpatients building have been relocated to safer, better lit and more secure areas on the level 1 and level 2 of the multi-storey car park.
Disabled blue badge holders parking in the barrier car parks can have their parking ticket validated at the security office, located on level 1 (ground floor) of the multi-storey.
