Parking problems during Sheffield Children's Hospital revamp

Parking problems are anticipated at Sheffield Children's Hospital

Hospital bosses have warned there will be no parking at Sheffield Children's Hospital for a full year when the £40m development work starts on January 6.

The revamp will bring improved facilities including a new outpatients department, more modern wards and a new main reception area.

Sheffield University’s new multi-storey car park on the corner of Clarkson Street and Glossop Road, opposite the hospital, is also due for completion by the end of next year.

But the upheaval means there will be no space for people to leave their cars at the children’s hospital for around a year from January 14, with access limited to picking-up and dropping-off patients or staff.
