I have a mid afternoon appointment soon at the Royal Princess Hospital Haywards Heath
My questions are...how bad is the parking? how long to queue for a place? anywhere to park outside the hospital? take the train instead?
Thanks v much......

Do not take the train. It is a long way from the station to the PRH

There are several roads around the hospital which you can park in if the car parks are full, but I've never had a problem with parking myself

Easy. Go into one of the parking areas and on the way in you collect a ticket. Have your appointment and on the way out put your ticket in the machine in the entrance lobby and it tells you how much to pay. Put your money in and it returns your ticket. Go to your car and drive to the auto barrier insert your ticket and then find your way out. Good idea to take some change. Bingo and good luck.

Ducatipete....is that supposed to be funny? Sorry but it was not, but I guess having a 2 week referral for suspected cancer has dampened my humour

Sorry to hear that, Nervous Patient.

I hope someone's going with you, and will be doing the driving. One less thing for you to worry about.

No wonder you're nervous, and the very best of luck.

Nervous Patient what I posted was to try and help. I had no idea it was going to offend. I was not aware of your condition and can only wish you all the best.

Parking is not a problem at Haywards Heath, but even disabled drivers have to pay. For Casualty, when our excellent minor injuries unit at Lewes is closed, I would go there- or to Uckfield where parking is free.
Anywhere but Brighton- the last resort!
