Concession rates are available to a range of patients and their families who are eligible.
NSW Health recognises the burden that regular or long term hospitalisation and/or treatment places on patients and their carers. Those eligible for concessional car parking include:
- holders of an RMS issued Mobility Parking Scheme permit
- holders of a Pensioner Concession Card
- holders of a Gold Veterans Affairs Card
- holders of a Health Care Card
- ongoing cancer treatment patients
- patients and their carers who are required to attend the hospital/facility for a course of treatment over a period of time greater than one week
- patients and their carers attending more frequently than twice weekly, including carers of long term patients who visit frequently
- cardiac rehabilitation education and exercise class attendees
- daily dressing outpatients
- Health Promotion education class attendees.
- Patients and carers who are experiencing financial hardship, but do not meet the listed eligibility categories, are also entitled to concessional car parking. They must speak to a social worker for an assessment.
Concessional rates for car parking fees are set annually, effective from 1 July each year. They are subject to annual review to reflect increases in the consumer price index (CPI). The fees are published in an annual NSW Health Information Bulletin, which is available on the NSW Health website.
Concessional car parking is free until 30 June 2019.
