Removal of vehicles parked dangerously at hospital campuses

From Monday 6 March police will be removing vehicles that are parked dangerously and obstructing emergency access points at Queen’s Medical Campus (QMC) and City Hospital. A fine of up to £350 will be imposed.

The decision has been made in order to ensure the highest levels of safety and ease of access for emergency services. It comes after a number of instances of emergency access being obstructed by vehicles, causing significant disruption to the services and inconvenience to passengers.

From Monday 6 March, any vehicles parked dangerously or obstructing emergency access (including parked on double red, double yellow or yellow hatched areas) will be removed. Fines will range from £150-£350 depending on the vehicle.

A reminder of NUH park etiquette follows:

  • No parking in blue badge spaces (any time of day) without blue badge
  • No parking on double red lines, double yellow lines or yellow hatched areas
  • On-call staff should use designated on-call spaces or staff car parks (not blue badge or drop-off bays). Only staff with on-call responsibilities can park in designated on-call bays.
  • Weekends/on-call/out-of-hours staff should park in staff car parks (not in patient/blue badge spaces)
  • No parking on site if you are awaiting a permit
  • No parking on site if you do not own a permit or your permit is out of date

Staff can contact the Site Matron or Security to report dangerous parking. The full car removal procedure can be found on the NUH website.
