Hospital Parking for Volunteer Drivers in Hampshire
Voluntary car schemes in the Good Neighbours Network provided over 66,000 trips to hospitals, GP and other medical appointments in 2013/14 – an invaluable service across Hampshire. This series of documents provides information relating to parking arrangements at the main hospital sites throughout the county and indicates where the Hampshire Hospital Parking Permit can be used. It also includes the hospitals that are just over the county boundary that are regularly used by Hampshire's car scheme drivers.
Each page has contact details, for both the hospital’s main reception and the department responsible for the parking arrangements, and information on the specific parking arrangements for that hospital site. In each case, one of the following symbols will be used:
Symbol 1 indicates that
Symbol 2 indicates that
Symbol 3 indicates that
Important: If you notice that anything is incorrect or you experience any problems please advise the Community Transport Team (contact details below).
Whilst every effort has been made to check that the information is correct, changes may occur that we are unaware of and we would appreciate your assistance in this. We hope that these pages will assist you in providing a much valued service and, together with the countywide Hospital Parking Permit, make it easier for you to continue helping your community.

The Hampshire Hospital Parking Permit
Hospital Parking Permits are available to voluntary car schemes that are part of the Good Neighbours Network and those schemes which operate under contract to Hampshire County Council.
The Good Neighbours Support Service provides information, guidance and support to Good Neighbours groups across Hampshire so that they can provide a dependable, trustworthy and sustainable service. (To join the Good Neighbours Network and for further information visit: www.goodneighbours.org.uk).
When using the permit, the general rule is:
If parking in pay and display or allocated bays, the parking permit should be displayed on your dashboard
If using car parks with barriers, the parking permit may be needed for ticket validation or reimbursement
(Please check the relevant document for information on specific hospitals)
Parking permits must include the drivers name, the car scheme details and contact number otherwise they will be invalid
The permit should only be used for official car scheme business
Remember that the permit does not guarantee a parking space or have the same rights as a Blue Badge
Only use Disabled Bays if your passenger has a Blue Badge, or the hospital allows volunteer drivers to use them for dropping off/picking up purposes
You may wish to consider leaving a note on your dashboard giving the details of the clinic and time of the patient’s appointment
For more information, or to request copies of the permit, please see
