Our Emergency Department in high demand

Our Emergency Department is currently extremely busy. To support our team during this time please only visit us if your child is seriously unwell.

If not, you can get medical help by contacting your GP, calling the NHS 111 service or heading to 111.nhs.uk and completing the online questionnaire (for those aged five and over).

For advice and information on Strep A, including a symptom checker and advice on which NHS service is the best to help you and your family should you need it, please visit the NHS website.


Visitors to our hospitals are strongly encouraged to use public transport, but we understand that this might not always be possible. There is limited parking available at each of our sites, should you need it.

Children's Hospital Parking

If you're visiting our hospital, please be aware that there is no on-site parking, so you will need to make use of nearby public car parks. Neighbouring car parks NCP (Royal Angus) and B4 are currently offering the following discounted rates to hospital visitors:

Times and cost:



Up to 1 hour


Up to 2 hours


Up to 4 hours


Up to 6 hours


Up to 8 hours


More than 8 hours


To take advantage of these rates you will need to visit our Welcome Desk at the main entrance either as you come in or as you leave to:

NCP and Royal Angus:


Validate the ticket issued at the Royal Angus entrance barrier which you will then need to pay at the machine within the car park


Enter your car registration into the tablet provided and click ‘validate’ before returning to the B4 carpark, where:

Non B4 members

Pay for your parking at the Pay Machines on the ground floor of the car park where the discount will automatically be applied.

B4 members

Simply drive out. Payment will automatically be taken at the discounted rate from your Membership Account.

Blue badge holders must pay to park in any of these car parks, however they can park for free if they use the disabled spaces allocated on the roads around our hospital site. A current blue badge must be displayed.

If you have an appointment in our Waterfall House building the Royal Angus car park is located just over the road so we would recommend this as the best place to park.

Long term parent parking (Steelhouse Lane site only)

If a child or young person has been an inpatient for more than 30 days then the parent or guardian can apply to get a long-term free parent parking pass for the NCP High Street car park. Please ask the nurse in charge of your child's care to complete the long-term parent parking request form. Your name will then be added to the waiting list. When a space becomes available, our team will contact the ward your child is on who will then advise you that a space is available. Once allocated, the parking tickets are issues from the Welcome Desk on a daily basis.

Parkview Clinic parking

There is free parking available on site at Parkview, including a main car park at the front of the clinic and an overflow car park to the rear. Please note these spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. On-street parking is also available on Queensbridge Road, should there be no available spaces on site.
