Wishing you everything good dash. I believe there is limited disabled parking which is at the back of the hospital but not sure how long you can book it for.

Let us know how things go please. Xxxx

Yes, Ive used the carpark (not as a patient, I had an exhibition in the cafe) and drove into one of the posts at the entrance - a small crowd assembled, not my best day. Cant tell you much else, sorry :D

Actually I got an overnight parking permit for next day appt as I stayed at the Brompton hospital hotel the night need to ring up to confirm your appt & make sure you tell them your staying in hospital accomodation & hopefully you will get a permit, it's on first come basis so make sure your on the phone 2 wks before you need a space & hopefully you will get a permit..bit of a palava but worth it..good luck. x
