Car parking

Parking at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital cannot be guaranteed at peak times.

There are a total of 850 parking spaces for patients and visitors at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.  There are car parks for inpatients (car parks K, M and O) located next to the wards and larger car parks on the other side of the hospital for outpatients (car parks B, C, D, F, G, H, I).  On busy days it may be difficult to find a space and our car park staff will direct you to the nearest available space.

Emergency drop-off bays are available for patients being transported to the Emergency Department.

This is an emergency drop-off only and cars should be moved within ten minutes to ensure that there is always capacity near the entrance of the Emergency Department for our most poorly patients to receive the care they need in a timely manner.

The nearest public NNUH parking spaces to the Emergency Department are the East outpatients car parks G and H.

There is also a privately operated car park across the road from NNUH – information for which can be found at the bottom of this page.

Carers’ Passport

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) runs the Carer’s Passport scheme which supports carers who are visiting and caring for patients staying in hospital.

The passport is available on all adult inpatient wards with the issuing of the passport at the discretion of the nurse in charge.  It offers some concessions as a small gesture of thanks and appreciation,  including discounted meals in the main restaurant and the coffee shops in the West and East Outpatient areas, as well as free parking.

The Carer’s Passport is for unpaid carers of any age who are willing to provide aspects of care while a patient is in NNUH. Aspects of care could include emotional and psychological support to maintain health and wellbeing, helping at mealtimes and providing personal care.

Please speak to the nurse in charge if you would like further details.

Disabled Parking

All of the hospital car parks have disabled spaces, but there are none available in the privately operated car park as this is too far from the building. Disabled parking is free in the hospital car parks but not the privately owned car park.  You will need to take your blue badge to reception to have your car parking ticket validated.

The reception desks are situated in Outpatients East and Outpatients West – both of which are manned from 09:00 until 16:00, and Inpatient East – manned 07:00 until 17:45 and Inpatient West which is manned 24 hours. When you arrive at the hospital please get your ticket validated at any of the reception desks for use in the machine when you leave.
