Cars and Car Parking

Leighton Hospital is well signposted on all of the major roads leading into Crewe.

Car parking 

At Leighton Hospital the car parks are either a barrier entry and exit system (Pay on Foot) or pay and display.

Pay on foot 

The driver will take a ticket on entering the car park to raise the barrier. The ticket is then scanned against the barcode reader on the Pay Station before they leave, where the appropriate charge is displayed.

The ticket is then scanned, barcode faced upwards, to raise the barrier on exit. Pay Stations are situated outside Macmillan Cancer Centre, Physiotherapy Department, Emergency Department and inside Maternity Outpatients and Treatment Centre.

Pay and display 

Some of the smaller car parks have pay and display machines installed. The machines are easy to operate with instructions on each machine. The pay and display machines will not accept notes. Three machines can accept debit and credit card payments.

Charges for both car parking types are as follows: 

  • No charge for the first 25 minutes 
  • £3.00 for between 25 minutes and 4 hours
  • £5.00 for between 4 and 24 hours
  • £10.00 for parking in excess of 24 hours.


A £10.00 concessionary pass card is available for regular visitors from the pay machines. Each card is available for up to seven days. To obtain a pass card, visitors must be parked on a car park with a barrier system.

There is an intercom fitted to each car park barrier which is linked directly to the Security Control Room at Leighton Hospital. Please press this intercom for security and car parking assistance.

At the Victoria Infirmary, passcards are available from the General Office (located within Verdin House) between the hours of 9am - 5pm, Monday - Friday.

When parking in a 'Pay and Display' designated area, visitors are required to display the valid ticket clearly in the windscreen of the vehicle. If parking in a 'Pay on Foot' designated area, visitors can use the ticket to gain entry or exit from any of the 'Pay on Foot' areas.

Concessionary passcards can be used at both hospitals.
