Car Parking

End of free parking

Since the start of the lockdown period in March, parking at the hospitals of Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been free of charge for patients and visitors throughout the pandemic. We hope that it has made things slightly easier and safer for everyone still needing to come onto the hospital sites. We have managed to retain this change for hospitals in Lancashire and South Cumbria whilst other areas of the North West have reintroduced parking changes.

With our services re-opening and more people returning to the hospital, our car parks are becoming very busy and so we’ve taken the difficult decision to reinstate car parking charges for patients and visitors from Monday 30 November 2020.

There are no disabled facilities in this car park but should disabled badge holders decide to use this car park, they will be subject to the standard car parking charges.

Registered Blue Badge Holders

There are designated spaces close to hospital entrances and there is signage in place to direct you to these spaces. If you hold a registered Blue Badge holder, display your valid badge in your windscreen and you may park in designated disabled bays, parking charges will apply.

Parking Rules

Victoria Hospital is a very busy site and we must ensure that roads and entrances are not blocked. The following car parking rules apply:

    • No parking on double yellow lines or yellow cross-hatched areas
    • All vehicles should be parked within the marked bays
    • Only registered disabled badge holders may park in disabled bays
    • A valid pay and display ticket should be clearly displayed in your car if you use the pay and display car parks
    • No exceeding the time limit in short stay bays.

The car parks are patrolled by car park security officers and any vehicles in breach of these rules are liable to Parking Enforcement and a fine of £30.


Officers carry out regular patrols and most areas are covered by CCTV, 24 hours a day. Although we will endeavour to ensure the safety of vehicles parked on the site, vehicles and their contents are left at the owners’ risk.

Children and Dogs

Please do not leave children or dogs alone in cars. If you discover a child or dog that appears to be in danger or distress, contact security officers. Where necessary, Social Services, the Police or the RSPCA will be called to assist.
