Frequent visitors to NSW public hospitals will save on parking

From 1 July 2017, patients and carers are able to access concession rates for public hospital parking and save $200 per week.


A three-day discounted ticket will cost a maximum of $10.90 and a seven-day ticket $21.70, and both allow multiple entries and exits.


Those eligible for discounted hospital car parking include:

  • patients and carers attending hospital for an ongoing course of treatment
  • patients and carers attending more than twice a week
  • holders of a RMS-issued Mobility Parking Scheme permit, Pensioner   Concession Card, Gold Veterans Affairs Card or Health Care Card
  • ongoing cancer treatment patients
  • cardiac rehabilitation and health promotion class attendees.

New South Wales Minister for Health Brad Hazzard said the changes mean much cheaper and fairer parking fees – especially for patients visiting a hospital for regular or long-term treatment.


“We have worked with private car park operators to get rates down to a maximum of $5.40 a day, giving patients and families real savings when they need it most,” Mr Hazzard said.


A website and smartphone app have been developed to provide information on fees and concessions, eligibility criteria, maps, public transport options and other health-related subsidies.
