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.
Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charge
The hospital is within the expanded Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). This means if your vehicle does not meet the ULEZ emissions standards, you will need to pay a daily charge to drive within the ULEZ. You can find out more, including whether your vehicle meets ULEZ standards, on the TfL website.
Reimbursement of ULEZ charge
As an NHS patient, you may be able to claim a reimbursement for the ULEZ charge if you are clinically assessed as unable to travel to an appointment on public transport. If you are eligible for reimbursement you can submit a claim form at the Cashiers Office in the main reception of Princess Royal University Hospital or by post (see address on form). Please note, you will need your receipt or customer account number to make a claim, along with your vehicle registration and date of travel.
