Useful information


There are several car parks available at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital:

  • at the front of the hospital by the main entrance
  • at the side near the Diabetes and Endocrine Centre
  • at the back by the Eye Unit and Derwent Suite

There are disabled parking spaces in all our pay and display car parks.

For investigations and tests, the closest car park will usually be the front car park. However, for clinic appointments the car park at the rear of the hospital might be closer. Please check your appointment letter if you find walking difficult, so that you can choose the car park which is best for your appointment. Please also check that you will be allowed to drive after your test, as some tests involve sedation which means that you will not be allowed to drive afterwards.

Please see the 'Travelling by Car' pages for more information.

Public transport

Many bus routes come into the Royal Bournemouth Hospital, and at the bus stop there is a digital sign informing you of accurate waiting times for the buses on each route. Please see our 'Travelling to Hospital' pages for more information.
