COVID-19 update: 14 December 2020

From Monday 4 January 2021, we are re-introducing charges for patient car parking. This is to reflect our previous process pre-COVID-19 restrictions and in line with national NHS guidance.

If you are visiting The Christie as a patient, you will need to pay £1.50 per visit at all pay stations. Please note: payments must be made in cash only. 

If you are a Blue Badge holder, you will not need to pay for parking at The Christie. Please see below to find out how to validate your ticket.

To see the latest updates on the changes we're making around COVID-19, please see our coronavirus information page.

Our car parks for patients and visitors are car park C (multi-storey) on Palatine Road (M20 3JJ) and car park D on Wilmslow Road (M20 3QH). Both of these car parks have accessible (Blue Badge) parking. 

Car parks

The on-site car parks at The Christie are consistently very busy. Due to this, you may not be able to find a parking space near the closest entrance to the department you require.

There is a drop-off point at the Oak Road entrance. Please note: due to COVID-19 restrictions, this is the only entrance patients may currently use. There are wheelchairs at this entrance – these require a £1 coin to operate.

The Trust cannot guarantee a car park space on site.

Car park D is open 24 hours a day. Car park C opens at 5:30am and closes at 10pm.

Parking information

As you enter the car park, take a ticket from the barrier and park.

When you are leaving, before returning to your vehicle, insert the ticket and your money into a Pay Station. As you leave, please insert your validated ticket at the barrier to exit the car park.

The first 30 minutes of parking are free. After this, charges apply – this is currently £1.50 per day. There are cash machines in the Oak Road main reception (department 3) and on the main corridor near department 12.

Please note: when visiting The Christie, please be aware of the local parking restrictions by checking signage and road markings.
