Patient drop off/collection
There is a set down area for the drop off and collection of patients and visitors at the main concourse entrance, outside Hospital 1 and outside the MISA building. These areas are strictly for set down only and for a maximum duration of 10 minutes only.
Parking enforcement measures apply to all vehicles parking on the campus. Please ensure you park appropriately and in parking designated for the general public only. Failure to do so will result in your vehicle being clamped and a release fee of €24 applies. This is in the interest of safety and to ensure the free flow of traffic around the site.
You are liable to be clamped if your vehicle is;
- Causing a hazard or obstruction on the campus, for example on a clearway
- Illegally parked, for example on a double yellow line or a set down area
- Parked in designated staff parking
- Parked in emergency on-call parking.
The disabled parking spaces are reserved for those patients and visitors with a valid disabled parking permit only. The permit must be displayed in the vehicle when utilising these spaces. Any vehicle parking in a disabled parking space without the appropriate permit on display is liable to be clamped.
Disabled parking is available at the following locations:
- 6 disabled parking spaces adjacent to the lifts in the underground car park
- 10 disabled parking spaces at the entrance to our Outpatient Department
- 4 disabled parking spaces outside Hospital 5 at the Diabetic Day Care Centre
- 4 in the surface public car park.
