Parking

Parents and visitors to Birmingham Children’s Hospital are encouraged to use public transport or nearby public car parks whenever possible as the on-site parking is extremely limited.

Parent parking

Short term parking

Parent Parking is available at the NCP Royal Angus Car Park  located on Whittall Street, B4 6HD opposite the hospital and at the NCP Londonderry House Car Park, 68 Dalton Street, B4 7LX which is a short walk away. 

Please note: The NCP Royal Angus and Printing House Car Park are not suitable for immune-suppressed children during the closure and demolition of our multi-storey car park from Friday 22 May 2015 to September 2015. Please use the NCP Londonderry House Car Park.

Passes and permits

The Security Hub will be open to take long-term parent parking payments at the following times:

  • Monday Afternoons (2-4pm)
  • Tuesday Mornings (8.15am-1pm)
  • Wednesday Afternoons (2pm-4pm)

For a parent to be able to apply for a long-term parent pass their child must have been an inpatient for at least 7 days.

Passes and permits are allocated after a small deposit has been paid and the first week’s payment has been received. Parents can pay in advance instead of weekly if they wish. 

Passes and permits are only allocated for a minimum of 7 days, but can be kept by the parent for the patient’s length of stay. As long as the payments are kept up to date.

Passes and permits will be cancelled if no further payment has been received 2 days after the expiry date. Parents are not allowed to keep the pass and permit if the patient has been sent home for more than 48hrs.

When the patient has been discharged passes and permits must be returned. The deposit will then be returned to the parent. The pass and permit can then be allocated to the next parent on the waiting list.

If the pass and permit is not returned within 14 days of the expiry date, the deposit will be forfeited.

For further Information please contact the Car Parking Team on 0121 333 8462 or by email at car.parking@bch.nhs.uk

Long term parking

Our hospital multi-storey car park is now closed.

Please note the key information below:

The 20 long term parent parking passes will be relocated to:

If you have been with us for longer than 7 days you can ask your ward to apply for a long term parking pass.

Once the application form is fully completed it can be handed in at the Security Hub or Welcome Desk.
