We know that the hospital car park and the approach to the hospital can be very busy during peak times (Tuesday to Thursday). We are sorry for this and we know it can add additional anxiety at what can already be a stressful time.
We have been putting on more clinics than ever to help us see patients as quickly as possible and reduce our waiting lists, and this has had an impact on traffic and parking on site. We are doing everything we can to address this, including building more than 100 additional parking spaces on site and developing a longer-term traffic management plan to reduce the need for cars to queue outside of the hospital site.
We always encourage patients and visitors to use public transport and nearby public car parks if able to do so. When planning your journey, please be aware that it may be necessary to park off-site, or arrange for somebody to drop you off at the entrance and park elsewhere.
The nearest public car parks are the Old Sheepskin (Pilton Causeway) or Fair View (Old Ice Factory), which are a 15-20 minute walk from North Devon District Hospital.
