Getting to hospital

The University Hospital of Leicester hospital sites are very busy.  Our aim is to ensure there are car parking spaces available for those who really need to use them.  We encourage you to use public transport, walk or cycle to the hospitals if you are fit and well. 

East Midlands Ambulance Service offer free transport service for patients with mobility problems. There are also a number of community schemes run by volunteers and charities, who may charge a small fee for the service.
