  • signage will be in place to direct all patients and visitors.
  • there will be no change to the front entrance emergency drop off and pick-up zones, accessible parking and permit parking.
  • public parking will continue to be temporarily unavailable in the front entrance car park however all patients and visitors can access public parking in the multi-deck car park via Mark Road.
