Car parking at Pilgrim Hospital

Over 500 car parking spaces are available for patients and visitors on site at Pilgrim Hospital in Boston.
Due to the demand for spaces in our car parks being high during peak times, we recommend that you arrive with plenty of time before your appointment to find a parking space or consider using public transport where possible.

On site car parking

The main car park is located directly outside the main entrance to the hospital. As you enter, your number plate will be photographed by the cameras at the entrance. When you are ready to leave simply visit one of the pay kiosks and enter your number plate. An image of your car will then appear and you will be told how much you need to pay based on the length of your stay.

The kiosks can take payments via coin, notes, credit/debit card or contactless. You can also pay using the good2go website.

Please be aware that Car park B, opposite Outpatients at Pilgrim hospital, Boston is currently closed until further notice. Can all patients and visitors proceed to car park A, which is on the left-hand side as you enter the site.

Signage is on site to help you navigate to this area and additional blue-badge provision is being made available whilst the blue-badge area in Car Park B is temporarily unavailable.

If you park in an incorrect area, outside of a marked bay, or fail to pay for your parking, you will be issued with a parking charge notice. Please be aware that from Tuesday 1 August 2023, changes to the British Parking Association code of practice will mean that any motorist who pays a parking charge notice will no longer be able to appeal it or request a refund. If you feel you have been issued a parking charge notice incorrectly, please follow the appeals process outlined in the notice.

You can also start planning your journey now by visiting our getting to the hospital page.

Blue Badge holders are eligible for free parking. On your first visit, display the clock portion of your Blue Badge in your vehicle and the badge holder then needs to present the photo portion to reception along with the vehicle registration. Once registered you can freely use the hospital’s blue badge and patient and visitor parking while attending appointments or visiting patients without visiting the payment machines at Grantham and District Hospital, Lincoln County Hospital and Pilgrim Hospital Boston. Users do not need to register individually at each site. You must display your entire Blue Badge until you leave. If your Blue Badge expires, or you visit in a different vehicle, you will need to visit reception to update your details.  

Car parking charges

All patients, visitors and staff need to park in designated parking spaces or they will receive a charge if parked inappropriately.

From Monday 2 November 2020, parking charges will be as follows:

Duration Charges
Up to 30 minutes FREE
Up to 1 hour £1
1 to 4 hours £2
4 – 24 hours £5
Motorcycle parking FREE
Blue Badge holders FREE (the vehicle needs to be pre-registered at main reception with the blue badge displayed in the windscreen. Vehicles  previously registered will still be on the system).
Concessions Remain in place as before. For further information discuss with the ward or department.

We aim to keep our charges as low as possible at all times, however the Trust must stay within our annual budget and so the cost of providing car parks does increase each year. Free parking is available for the following patients:

  • Oncology patients receiving regular treatment
  • Collection of prescriptions and hearing aid batteries
  • Parents attending to support a child’s needs in the special care baby unit
  • Clergy visiting parishioners
  • Following bereavement
  • Frequent outpatients who have to attend regular appointments to manage long-term conditions
  • Adults accompanying children for emergency treatment
  • Parents of sick children staying in hospital overnight
  • Care Partner Badge Holders.

Concessions for outpatients in receipt of certain social security benefits are available from the income office and main reception.

Patients who believe that are eligible for free parking should mention it to the clinic or ward reception team upon arrival.

If you think you are entitled to concessions, please visit any of our reception desks.

Patients and visitors are encouraged wherever possible to register to use the good2go website to pay for car parking online after their visit.
