If your baby is admitted to the SCU, parents are able to park in the main car park free of charge. This will be discussed with you on admission to the unit.
Public Car Parking at North Devon District Hospital
The public car park at NDDH is located at Car Park A on the left as you enter the main hospital site and has 285 Parking and 11 Disabled spaces, with an additional 10 disabled spaces outside the main entrance. There are an additional 3 disabled bays outside Orthopaedics, 2 outside Ladywell Unit and 2 outside DBU.
The `Park Mark’ signs at the entrance to the car park indicates that our car parks have been vetted for their security and meet a national standard.
A Pay on Foot system is operated at Car Park A and Patients and Visitors will collect a barrier ticket on entry and pay at the machine to receive an exit ticket. The payment machines are located at the main entrance to the hospital, also next to the ramp and at the centre of the car park. Once payment has been made please note that there is a 15 minute grace period in which to return to your vehicle and exit the car park, in this case the entrance ticket should be used to exit the exit barrier.
Please note – the machines do take credit/debit cards.

Help with parking costs
Any patient who is in receipt of benefits such as Incapacity Benefit, Pension Benefit or Income Support, can fill in an HC5 form for help towards travelling costs and refund of car parking charges. Patients who are not in receipt of any of the relevant benefits, but who are nonetheless on a low income, can fill in an HC1 form to apply for help toward travel costs and refund of car parking charges. If accepted they will get an HC2 certificate to allow them to get this help with costs. Both HC5 and HC1 forms are available outside the General Office at North Devon District Hospital.
Disabled drivers may park near the main entrance in specific parking places. Blue badge holders in these spaces will be able to park free of charge.
