Main entrance at St Peter's

As part of the ongoing Transformation works at St Peter’s Hospital, there will be some temporary changes to how the main entrance of the hospital is accessed. As of Monday 24th February, for eight weeks, there will be no access for patient or visitor drop off at the front entrance. If you are being dropped off by car or taxi, please arrange to be dropped in one of the visitor car parks, which are free to park in for the first 20 minutes. The A&E car park is currently dedicated for blue badge parking and has the closest access to the hospital. You can find a map of the car parks here.

The main entrance (shown above) will also be closed for pedestrian access. Entrance to the hospital from this side can be made via the temporary entrance, approx. 25 yards from the main entrance, which will be signposted. This entrance guides you along a short corridor, past the café to the main reception area.

If you travel by bus or car, your route will not be affected-the bus stop and route into the hospital on foot from these locations will not change, you will just enter through the temporary entrance as opposed to the main entrance. There will still be 20 minutes free drop off in all of the visitor parking areas.

The Patient Transfer Service will run as normal and the necessary arrangements are in place for patients to be dropped at the Duchess of Kent entrance. Access to BMI remains the same.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time.
