There is limited parking on site and locally, so we advise using public transport to get here where possible. We are in the process of upgrading the car park at the hospital. Patients and visitors can continue to use car parking spaces at the front of the hospital, including the drop off and collection bays.

The walking route between the hospital and Sainsbury’s is temporarily closed from 26 March 2022. This is while we carry out building works that will connect our day surgery unit with the main hospital building.

Frequent outpatient attenders

Parking at the PRUH and Orpington Hospital will be provided free in our public car parks to outpatients who attend hospital for an outpatient appointment at least three times within a month and for an overall period of at least three months. A ‘month’ is defined as a period of 30 days. Parking is on a first come basis and there is no guarantee that a space will be available.  All requests for free parking are to be directed to the outpatient teams in the first instance.

Parents of sick children staying overnight

Parking at the hospital will be provided free in our public car park between the hours of 7.30pm and 8.00am to the parent of a child staying overnight in hospital.  A parent is a parent or guardian of a child or young person, under 18 years of age, who is admitted as an inpatient at hospital overnight.  This would apply to a maximum of 2 vehicles.  Parking is on a first come basis and there is no guarantee that a space will be available.  All requests for free parking are to be directed to the ward teams in the first instance.
