Q-Park upgrades car parking services at Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust

European parking provider, Q-Park UK has taken over the parking operation at two major satellite hospitals operated by Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust. The company has expanded its healthcare portfolio to now include St Michael’s Hospital in Hayle and West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance.

For many years, Q-Park has positively managed numerous hospital sites across the country including the parking operation at the Trust's main hospital site in Truro. The opportunity to manage the two new sites at Penzance and Hayle will run alongside the existing Truro contract until 2022.

The Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust will be upgrading the ticket machines, signage and lining in these car parks, to improve the existing facilities.

Adam Bidder, Managing Director for Q-Park comments: “The healthcare sector is an important market for Q-Park and we’re delighted to be expanding our parking services at St Michaels and West Cornwall Hospitals. We understand that providing a quality parking experience for patients and visitors is vitally important and we’re delighted to be able to spread this approach to our new facilities and to build on our positive relationship with the Trust.”

The Trust comments: “We are pleased to be bringing together the contract for car parking across our hospital sites in Truro, Hayle and Penzance and look forward to continuing to work in partnership with Q-Park Limited in managing parking services for our visitors and staff. ”
