Planning for getting to the hospital and knowing where to park can reduce a lot of stress on your child’s admission day. The tips below might help you prepare.
Make sure to leave plenty of time for delays while travelling and parking.
Hospital car parks can be very busy or full – be prepared to wait for a space or maybe have one person drop you and your child off first and then park.
Some carparks only take coins or need an App on your phone – call the hospital to check before you go.
There can be lots of walking in a hospital – bringing a buggy can be useful.
If your child will be in hospital for longer than 7 days, make sure to ask if a cheaper rate for long-term parking is available.
