The visitor and patient car parking system at Salisbury District Hospital has been reinstated and went ‘live’ on Wednesday 7th June 2023.
Following significant difficulties earlier in the year, the hospital has listened to users and has instructed the supplier to install additional cameras to improve the accuracy of the registration number recognition.
There will also be simpler, additional validation devices for disabled drivers, with maps to show where they are. The map showing locations of payment and validation devices is here.
The system is owned and managed by the hospital, working alongside the supplier, APCOA, to provide a professional parking experience for users. After the running costs and maintenance costs are taken out of the income, all of the remaining funds are used for the provision of patient care at Salisbury District Hospital.
Parking fees will apply from 6:00am to 10:00pm, seven days a week in the camera-controlled 'pay on exit' system at the hospital. Car parking is FREE for all drivers, between 10:00pm and 6:00am.
Parking can be paid for using the APCOA app, available on Apple or Google Play. Cash and card payments are also accepted at pay machines and kiosks. Please note that no change is given from the parking machines. Motorcycles are exempt from charges.
There has been no increase to the parking fees and the hospital has introduced a one-hour tariff, reduced from two hours, so that patients and visitors could even be paying less than they have been. There is also 30 minutes’ time to drop off or pick up without being charged.
