Parents and visitors to Birmingham Children’s Hospital are encouraged to use public transport or nearby public car parks whenever possible as there is no on-site parking. 

The area at the front of the hospital is a drop off area only and is not used for parent parking.

Parent & visitor parking

Parking is available at the NCP Royal Angus Car Park located on Whittall Street, B4 6HD opposite the hospital or Printing House Car Park located on Printing House Street B4 6DE.

Blue Badge holders must pay to park in any of the car parks highlighted but they can park for free if they use the “Disabled Spaces” allocated on the roads around the hospital site. A current blue badge must be displayed.

Please note: The NCP Royal Angus and Printing House Car Park are not suitable for immune-suppressed children during the closure and demolition of the onsite multi-story car park which should be completed at the end of December 2015. You should have been advised of this arrangement, and given a letter as proof for validation if your child is immune suppressed. You will be allocated a space in the NCP Londonderry House Car Park and pay BCH car parking rates by getting your NCP ticket validated. Process outlined below in the next paragraph.    

Car parking charges

Royal Angus - The Pay as You Go validation is at the Welcome Desk which allows users to access the tariff in the table below. You take your ticket as you enter the Royal Angus then validate your ticket at the Welcome Desk at the main entrance either as you come in or as you leave the site; once the ticket is validated you pay at the pay machine within the car park the charges outlined below. 

Printing House Car Park (pay & display) – the payment machine for this is located within the car park and you do not need to validate your ticket.

Long term parent passes

Families can apply for long term parking once a patient has been an inpatient for at least 7 days. A member of the Nursing team should complete “Parent parking application form”; this can be sent by internal post or hand delivered to the Security Hub or Welcome Desk.

The application once received by our Facilities team will then be either placed on to a waiting list, or if available, a pass will be offered to the Parent. The passes give the parent access to the NCP High Street, Dale End, Birmingham, B4 7NJ but a deposit of £15 must be paid for the parking pass; this will be refunded on return of the parking pass.

Parents are not allowed to keep the pass if the Patient has been sent home for more than 48 hours.

When the Patient has been discharged passes must be returned, deposit will then be returned to the Parent. The pass can then be allocated to the next Parent on the waiting list.

If the pass is not returned within 2 working days of the Patients discharge, the deposit will be forfeited.

The Security Hub will be open at the following times:-

Monday afternoon 2pm-4pm
Tuesday Mornings 8.15am-1pm
Wednesday afternoons 2-4pm
Or telephone 0121 333 8462 or email
