Leighton Hospital is well signposted on all of the major roads leading into Crewe.
At our Leighton site, the car parks are run and managed by our in-house security team. Car parks are a mix of barrier access and pay and display. For all barrier accessed car parks there are a number of pay stations around the site. In our pay and display car parks the machines are located a short walk from the parking bays.
No Public Parking on the Saxon Gate Estate
Patients and visitors to Leighton Hospital are advised that there is no public parking on the Saxon Gate Estate, which is located on Gordon Geddes Way off Flowers Lane. The Trust has received a number of complaints from residents relating to both congestion and dangerous parking and visitors are respectfully requested to avoid this area and park on the hospital site.
On entry to one of our barriers accessed car parks, the driver is required to press and take a ticket. This ticket has a printed QR code. Once the driver is leaving, they should first locate one of the pay stations from the list below. Once at the pay station the driver will need to scan the QR code and the fee will be displayed on the pay station. Payment can be made by cash or card, contactless payment is also available. Once the payment has been processed, the driver can proceed to the exit barrier in their vehicle and present the QR code to the exit reader, allowing them to exit.
Pay Station Locations:
Macmillan Cancer 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. When parking in a pay and display designated area, visitors are required to display the valid ticket clearly in the windscreen of the vehicle.
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.
Concessionary passcards can be used at both hospitals.
