Our hospitals

Scarborough Hospital

Scarborough Hospital is situated on Woodlands Drive, two miles north of the town centre.

If you are unsure where to go when you arrive at the hospital please ask at the reception in the main entrance.

Car Parking

A new 262 space car park has now opened at Scarborough Hospital.  The car park is designated for patient and visitor use only and is located to the right of the main entrance, near the helipad. 

The car park operates on a barrier/pay on exit system and payments can be made by cash or card.

There is a drop off zone outside the North entrance, accessed via Scalby Road, and a car park containing disabled and a small number of general spaces.  The main visitor car park is at the South entrance, accessed via Woodlands Drive. If parking in the main visitor car park, enter the hospital via the main entrance then follow the internal signs to Outpatients C, North Wing.  The visitor car park is approximately 400m from Outpatients C.

Disabled blue badge holders do not need to purchase a ticket if they are parked in a designated disabled bay. Over the coming months there will be further work to increase the number of disabled spaces as well as improve traffic flow on the site.

Car park management is in operation and enforcement notices will be given to cars parked improperly, for example on the pavement or not in a designated bay, or without payment.  Penalty charges are £50, or £25 if paid within 14 days, and are administered by an external company.
