East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust has a concessionary parking ticket available for visitors visiting the hospital frequently.
To qualify for a concessionary ticket you need to complete a form obtained from car parking office in the main entrance, located in the main reception at Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital
There is a qualification period of three consecutive days for receipts with a minimum value of £10.50. The form must be signed by a senior nurse on the ward and the car parking team will then issue a ticket which will allow you access to the car park for four separate occasions.
The concessionary ticket will be valid for a period of seven days from the date the ticket was first issued. When the ticket expires, you must then pay to park and obtain receipts as per the above criteria
In cases where you have been visiting for eight weeks you are entitled to a sixty day pass, this allows for unlimited parking during the sixty day period. A new form will need to be completed at this stage.
If the patient you are visiting is discharged then re-admitted at a later date, then you will be required to apply again. The concessionary ticket is only valid with receipts from the Trust and the concessionary ticket is only valid at the Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital.
