The Trust


East Cheshire NHS Trust has an established travel plan which includes bike and walk to work schemes and car sharing initiatives in order to ensure that we play our part in reducing our carbon footprint and protecting the environment.

Bikes in the bike shed

The travel plan also includes links with local bus services and with local taxi firms for our patients and visitors to ensure their journey to us is as easy as possible. In addition, the trust runs a successful cycle to work scheme which allows staff members to purchase cycles and accessories at significantly discounted rates. 

A camera-controlled car park management system is in operation at Macclesfield District General Hospital and parking fees apply 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. 

The system is more convenient as it does away with the need for pay and display tickets and provides many more ways to purchase parking time. It also improves accessibility for patients and help prevent dangerous and inconsiderate parking.

The payment machines require all visitors to enter their vehicle's registration numbers. Please remember to enter your FULL vehicle registration number into the payment machine when purchasing parking time. Parking time can be purchased on arrival, however, if you do exceed the amount of time purchased you can pay for additional parking time up to midnight on the day of your visit. Just make sure that the time you add on plus the original time you paid for covers your stay. 

There is also the option to pay by phone or online (see instructions on machines) and payment can be made any time until midnight on the day of your arrival. Please see the signage and payment machines for details. 

Drop-offs and pick-ups

The parking management system at Macclesfield Hospital allows up to 30 minutes for drop-offs and pick-ups. Please be aware though that spending longer than this in a car park without paying the appropriate fee, even if you stay with your vehicle, will result in a parking charge notice (PCN) of £70, which will be reduced to £40 if paid within the first 14 days.

We encourage all staff, patients and visitors to use public transport, walk or cycle to the hospital where possible.
