Car Parking Pressures at the Ulster Hospital
The increasing requirements for the provision of hospital services have inevitably led to additional pressure on car parking at the Ulster site. This has lead to queuing at car parks during peak times and the Trust would unreservedly apologise to visitors for the delay that this can cause.
We would advise that if your need to use a vehicle and our car parking facilities to enable an appointment or to visit a patient that you allow at least 30 minutes to get parked.
