Increase in Manor Hospital car park charges

Patients and visitors are being advised that car parking charges at Walsall Manor Hospital will increase from Monday 16 October 2017. The change brings Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust in line with neighbouring trusts, and is the first increase implemented in the last five years.

The new charges will be as follows:

Up to 1 Hour


Up to 2 Hours


Up to 3 Hours


Up to 5 Hours


Up to 24 Hours


Income generated from these fees is used to fund security, maintenance and upkeep of our car parking facilities and any surplus is used to improve patient care. Car parking fees are reviewed annually and recommendations go through the Trust’s governance process for consideration.

The trust has not changed its charges for five years and these new ones bring Walsall in line with neighbouring trusts. A free 10 minute drop off facility will remain at our hospital site and we have reduced the 24 hour charge for those who have to spend a longer amount of time at the hospital.

We are also going to introduce payment by card and payment by phone which patients, their carers and visitors have suggested as an improvement. ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) will also be installed later this year on the main patient and visitors’ car park which should help traffic flow.

Free parking is still available for those accessing Chemotherapy, Neonatal, End of Life care and some ad hoc clinics and regular visitors to the hospital can buy a weekly concessionary pass at a charge of £13 per week, which is also comparable to neighbouring trusts and local parking charges.  Weekly concessionary passes are available at General Office, Route 136.
