If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia) – the advice is to stay at home for 10 days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

Car Parking during Covid 19

From Monday 29 June we are reintroducing some of our visitor and patient car parks.

Parking is still currently free at our hospitals, however public and visitor car parks will be manned by staff to ensure they run smoothly.

While not all of our car parks are currently open to visitors and patients due to the on-going pandemic, we are encouraging people – if possible- to be dropped off and collected at our hospitals, to ensure there is enough parking space for everyone.

From 6am-6pm our patients and visitors can use the following car parks:

  1. East block car park 1 QMC
  2. Car park 3 QMC (Currie court)
  3. Purple car park City Campus
  4. Yellow car park (special separation arrangements are in place) City
  5. All patient Visitor Pay and display parking

Please see here for a map of the QMC and here for a map of our City site.

Thank you for your patience.

Travel by car and parking

QMC is on the western side of the city, just on the east side (inside) of the Nottingham ring road at its junction with the A52. The A52 crosses the M1 at junction 25.

Leave the M1 motorway at junction 25, and take the 'A52 to Nottingham', past Stapleford, Bramcote and Wollaton Park. As you pass the university on your right you will come to a large traffic island with QMC on the right immediately after the island. Turn right here, take the first slip road on the left into the hospital grounds and continue around the hospital perimeter road.

Parking at QMC

The Trust enforces parking rules at our sites. This means that anyone parking dangerously, obstructing red lined or hatchet areas, or failing to follow local parking rules could face a £50 fine (reduced to £25 if paid in 14 days).

The main patient and visitor parking areas at QMC are car park 1 (access on East Road) and car park 3 (access at the junction between East Road and South Road).

Follow the signs when arriving at QMC, or see the map below (click to enlarge).
