Car Parking

End of free parking

Since the start of the lockdown period in March 2020, parking at the hospitals of Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was free of charge for patients and visitors throughout the pandemic.

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

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.
