Patients and relatives may have seen stories in the media this morning about increases in car parking charges at NHS hospitals.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital has frozen its car parking charges for the past five years and parking is available free of charge to drivers displaying a valid disabled driver’s permit.

In addition, discretionary exemptions and concessions are also available for the following groups:

  • Parents and family of patients being treated in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Burns Unit*
  • Patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer*
  • Emergency arrivals to the A&E Department*
  • Parents/visitors of children who are inpatients*
  • Bereaved relatives*

Any revenue from car parking fees goes directly to support the work of the hospital and patient care.
