Newcastle Hospitals Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI) is situated in the heart of Newcastle’s city centre adjacent to the University. With over 200,000 patient and visitor journeys into the hospital every month, demand for car parking spaces is inevitably very high.
Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI) has been providing healthcare to communities in Newcastle and the Noth East for over 250 years. The hospitals success has led to more patients, visitors and extra staff. As a result the size and scale of the hospital has created a strain on parking bays, which include disabled spaces, reserved bays for essential car users delivering community services but need to make frequent trips back to the hospital, and a short stay/drop-off area, which have all suffered from significant levels of abuse over a number of years.
