NHS Patients Parking Scheme
Northwood House Charitable Trust is delighted to provide four free parking spaces every day in our Park Road Car Park for patients who need to travel on a regular or ad-hoc basis to the mainland for NHS treatment or appointments.
This is great news for some patients travelling to the mainland for one-off NHS hospital appointments or those commuting over daily for on-going treatment. The scheme will be administered by Cowes Town Council, on behalf of Northwood House Charitable Trust.
Patients who want to take advantage of the scheme must apply to Cowes Town Council in advance by calling the Town Council office on 01983 209022 or visiting during office hours: 9.30 am – 12.00 pm, Monday to Friday. Permits will only be issued upon receipt of proof of appointment and must collected prior to the date of use from the Town Council Office, Northwood House, Ward Avenue, Cowes PO31 8AZ.
Please go to the Cowes Town Council website for more information:
Only four spaces are available and unfortunately there is no guarantee that the scheme won’t be over-subscribed on a regular basis, so we apologise in advance if we are unable to offer parking to all those who apply.
Alternatively, Red Funnel Ferries also have two free car parking spaces adjacent to the West Cowes Red Funnel terminal available for patients to use. Please phone Red Funnel on 084 4844 9988 for more information.
