building work taking place which has reduced the number of drop off

restricted to 15 minutes for all users.
If you are a blue badge holder, you will be able to park in any
of our pay and display parking spaces, as long as your blue badge
is correctly display. If you need to use our waiting bays, you are
also limited to 15 minutes.
New pay and display spaces have been opened at St Michaels

Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre car park, due to the
building work. Please ensure you have sufficient change with you
for use in the pay and display machines.
