Car parking for patients at DRI

Please note, from Monday 3 August, we will allocate a small number of car parking spaces at Doncaster Royal Infirmary for patients.

Car parking for staff and patients remains free until further notice and we do not have any plans to reintroduce this at present.

Car parking spaces for patients

Please note, restrictions on these spaces will be in operation from 9am to 6pm each and every day. They will be clearly marked as such and colleagues parking here during these times will be asked to move.

Why now? We are starting to see increase numbers within our emergency department at Doncaster Royal Infirmary. With the lessening of visiting restrictions, more people are coming to site – while we encourage our public to use our Park and Ride service, some will have access and mobility issues and we must create dedicated car parking space for them.

Alternative places to leave your car:

Any pay and display place not outlined above is available for you to park within free of charge. Also please note that the Council has also relaxed the parking enforcement around Doncaster Royal Infirmary. Where the roads are marked two hour or three hour stay, these are currently extended indefinitely. These spaces can be found on Thorne Road and Armthorpe Road – there is also small car park just above the Fracture Clinic (near to small cafe) which is free to park within. Note, the Cumberland is not free.

If parking off-site, please respect our neighbours when leaving your vehicle.

You can also make use of the Park and Ride service. The journey takes around five minutes, depositing passengers at our South Block entrance. Anyone using this service is asked to wear a face covering for the duration of the journey. We will keep a close eye on this service for the next few weeks to understand if we need to increase capacity.

The timetable can be found here.

Finally, if you park at the Park and Ride, weather and time permitting, it is around a 15 minute walk to site. Completed at a moderate pace, this journey as a round-trip will burn around 100 calories. Here is a suggested walking route:
