Travel by car and parking
QMC is on the western side of the city, just on the east side (inside) of the Nottingham ring road at its junction with the A52. The A52 crosses the M1 at junction 25.
Leave the M1 motorway at junction 25, and take the 'A52 to Nottingham', past Stapleford, Bramcote and Wollaton Park. As you pass the university on your right you will come to a large traffic island with QMC on the right immediately after the island. Turn right here, take the first slip road on the left into the hospital grounds and continue around the hospital perimeter road.
Parking at QMC

Please note: Our parking charges for patients, visitors and Blue Badge holders are changing. Click here for more information.
Charges in the Nottingham Treatment Centre car park are different to QMC, as the Treatment Centre is run by Circle. Details of parking charges for the Treatment Centre are available here.
Disabled car parking
Parking for blue badge holders is free in designated blue badge spaces (but not within the main paid-for barrier-controlled car parks).
There is a dedicated car park for blue badge holders outside the Fracture Clinic on the main hospital ring road. If there are no official spaces available, blue badge holders may park anywhere on site that is not marked with red lines, provided they do so in a safe and proper manner and they do not impede ambulance/fire engine access.
