Free hospital parking on Christmas Day

Patients and visitors will be able to park for free today at Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Goole hospitals during visiting hours.

The car park barriers at the three hospitals, which are run by Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust, will be raised between 11am and 8pm.

“It would be fantastic if no one had to be in hospital over Christmas but unfortunately we do have patients who have to stay in over the festive period.

“This Christmas Day, patients and visitors will be able to park for free.

"We understand people would rather be at home with their loved ones so we welcome visitors as usual to come in but without a cost to park during our extended visiting hours from 11am to 8pm.”

Visitors are reminded that the hospital Park and Ride from The Parishes in Scunthorpe town centre will not be running on Christmas Day.
