Truro Health Park - Car Parking Regulations - see 'News' for info

Patients can park for up to two hours, and arrangements will be in place for patients who exceed the two hour period due to their appointments over-running. 

These parking arrangements came into force at Truro Health Park on 1 April 2012 and came after months of research as a response to patient and public complaints that accessing the car park was proving increasingly challenging and causing problems to those affected.  These arrangements mean fewer staff are able to park on site and all patients are encouraged to stay only for the length of their appointment so that spaces can be used by other patients. The regulations also clearly state that the car park can not be used by the shopping public or by local residents who are not using the facility.
