Travelling by Bus
The upgrades to the bus stops on site will be undertaken over the next 3 weeks starting today, Monday 9 November.
So that this work can be carried out no buses will be entering the hospital site and alternative drop off and collection points are in place on Galsworthy Road/Kingston Hill.
Please can you make patients aware that buses will still be running to and from the hospital on Galsworthy Road. In order to get a bus to Kingston Town Centre please signpost them to Galsworthy Road.
The route most affected, the K2/K4, will depart from a temporary bus stop on Kingston Hill, this is approximately 100 metres from the normal bus stop, patients and staff with mobility issues should consider catching the K3 from Galsworthy Road (just across the pedestrian crossing) into Kingston Eden Street and taking the K2 from there. The K2 will drop off passengers on Galsworthy Road (next to the residences) at the 213/57 bus stop.
TFL will be providing flyers for patients and staff directing them to the correct bus stops on Galsworthy Road and will place signage at the bus stop on site to direct and advise people.
We strongly recommend that patients and visitors use public transport to get to the hospital.

Travelling by Car
We strongly recommend that patients and visitors use public transport to get to the hospital. The Trust is well served by both buses and trains.
If you wish to travel by car, please be aware that parking at the hospital site is very limited and you should allow yourself plenty of time to find a parking space. At busy times, there may be queues for spaces.
The camera-operated car parking system (ANPR) will record your car registration as soon as you enter and leave the hospital site. Please make sure if you have a blue badge that you have registered your car registration – details on how to do this are below.
ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition)
ANPR records the exact time you drive into and out of the hospital site and compares this to the amount you have paid. If you stay longer than expected you must ‘top up’ by paying the additional amount before you leave.
The car parking system has a grace period designed to ensure that you are not unfairly charged for the time spent finding a parking space or if you are just quickly dropping off or collecting from the site. This grace period is 20 minutes. If you are entering and leaving the site within 20 minutes then no charges will be applicable, if you are on site for 1h 20 minutes you will need to pay for 1 hour etc.
The new system offers a number of payment options, allowing visitors and patients to Pay on Arrival or Pay on Exit:
The charging period for the public car parks are from 8:00am to 8:00pm, seven days a week. You can purchase additional time (if required) at the payment machines or by phone
The current minimum fee is £1.80 (for the first hour) and £1.50 for each hour thereafter (up to five hours).

Blue badge holders
All blue badge holders will need to register their car registration with the new system to ensure you do not get a ticket. This can be done by asking one of the staff in the clinic, ward, A&E or at main reception to register it for you, by calling 020 8934 2003 or emailing your vehicle registration, blue badge number and its expiry date to email@example.com. This can be done in advance or within 24 hours of parking on site. If you have received a Penalty Charge Notice and are a Blue Badge Holder please include the reference number of the fine in your e-mail so the Trust can resolve this for you. All blue badge holders can park in any visitor car parking space except staff parking areas.
