By car

Because of the limited number of parking spaces available, we ask patients to consider coming to the Sutton hospital by public transport or taxi rather than by car. If you do wish to drive, please follow these instructions.

When travelling from outside London, leave the M25 at Junction 8 and join the A217 to Sutton. Follow this road for about eight miles until you reach the roundabout with a signpost for the B2230 to Sutton.

There is a controlled parking zone in the area around the hospital, making on‑street parking difficult. Car parking space for patients and visitors at the hospital is limited due to ongoing building works.

There are a number of reserved spaces at the front of the hospital for wheelchair users, for the Oak Centre for Children and Young People, short-stay drop off spaces and hospital transport. All other drivers at Sutton need to use the main car park, which has a barrier‑controlled entrance and exit system. There are further disabled spaces beyond the barrier.

The main car park operates on a pay‑on‑foot basis on leaving the hospital, although the first 30 minutes are free. You will find pay machines outside the main entrance and outside the Radiotherapy Department entrance. The machines currently take most coins, notes and credit/debit cards, and give change.
