Travel to Work

Your Commute to Work

Being one of the largest employers in the region, employing over 17,000 people working at QMC, City Hospital and Ropewalk House, it is unsurprising that NUH generates a significant demand for travel. Acknowledging this, we encourage all staff to look towards low carbon transport options were possible. This page will help you to decide the best commute for you and for the environment, and will provide you with information on how to travel to the trust via active travel, sustainable travel or by car .

All sites at NUH are conveniently located in and around central Nottingham, which makes it easily accessible via public transport. To help aid you in this, the Trust has in place a fantastic travel to work scheme , offering discounted travel passes to help you commute using the bus, tram or train, depending on what best suits you and your needs.

Why should we commute sustainably?

Reducing our emission footprint to act on climate change can seem difficult, even impossible if we rely on cars to get to work, but small actions lead to big changes.

Commuting is not only a real source of stress and frustration for most of us, but it’s also a serious source of climate altering gases. Every commute made in a single-occupancy vehicle puts more pressure on the environment.

In 2020, through our Staff Travel Survey, we found that over 50% of our staff travel to work via car.

Even though alternatives like telecommuting continue to gather momentum, a large majority of the NUH workforce still travels to and from a physical workplace, day in and day out. If you are one of these staff members why not look at some of our alternative options?

 Carbon footprint per type of transport

To enable this, all NHS trusts will be required to have a green travel plan as part of their annual planning and reporting.  If you would like to hear about our NUH Travel Plan please email
