Ribbon cut on new Royal Stoke staff car park

University Hospitals of the North Midlands (UHNM) NHS Trust today officially opened its new staff car park at Hilton Road, Newcastle-under-Lyme.

The new car park at the former Grindley Hill Court, Royal Stoke University Hospital replaces the existing staff parking spaces provided at the Royal Infirmary and Central Outpatients Department sites.

This leaves the way for the former Royal Infirmary to be developed for much-needed local housing and community services.

Tracy Bullock, UHNM Chief Executive today officially opened the 1,680 space multi-storey car park in a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by representatives from UHNM, contractors IHP, Stoke City Council planning department and local residents.

Lorraine Whitehead, Director of Estates, Facilities and PFI at the Trust, said: “We are thrilled to be able to open our new car park which improves NHS facilities for staff, enables better car parking for our patients and allows for the redevelopment of the Royal Infirmary site.”

Tracy Bullock, UHNM Chief Executive said: “I am delighted to officially open our new staff car park. If we have got staff parking in the right place, it helps ease the burden on parking spaces for our patients and visitors and supports our local residents also. I would like to thank all teams involved in bringing this project in on time and within budget but also to our local planners and residents for their patience and willingness to work with us.”

The car park, on Hilton Road, will be available for staff to park from Tuesday 7 May 2024.
