Concessional car parking fees in NSW public hospitals

NSW Health recognises the burden that regular or long term hospitalisation and/or treatment places on patients and their carers. From 1 July 2017 vulnerable patients and their carers will now have improved access to public hospital car parking.

Concession rates are now available for eligible patients and their carers who require regular or long term hospitalisation and/or treatment, in all public hospital car parks in NSW where fees applied. 

Public hospitals where car parking is provided at no cost will not be affected unless the site is subject to future car park development.

Visit for further information on concessional parking at your local public hospital or download our app NSW Health hospital parking and directions on Google play or iTunes.
