Staff and Contractor Parking Applications

There are a wide range of travel choices to consider when commuting to or travelling between our work locations.  Using an active and sustainable alternative to travelling alone by car for your journey, regularly, occasionally or even just as a part of it can:

  • Improve your physical fitness and mental wellbeing;
  • Reduce your impact on the environment;
  • Improve air quality;
  • Reduce your commuting costs;
  • Help our organisation better manage our travel and climate change impacts.

Please use the options listed under each care organisation below to create your own personalised travel plan for journeys to and from our hospital sites and suggest alternatives.

Staff and Volunteer Parking

Staff parking charges are currently suspended across the NHS in England due to the pandemic; this means that salary deductions and payments for staff parking stopped on 1st April 2020.  Even though charges are still suspended, in order to control and manage parking at our hospitals, parking applications are being gradually restarted.

The Northern Care Alliance is starting to launch a new online parking application system.  For the current situation at each of our Care Organisations, please see details below.

Contractor Parking

Contractors are currently required to pay for parking on our hospital sites in one of two ways:

  1. As a Visitor at the relevant Patient & Visitor Parking Charge Tariff at the hospital concerned.
  2. Using the PaySmarti instructions or follow parking information supplied as part of your contract documentation or site induction process by the Supervising Officer.
