Planning your trip

We have a number of exciting developments happening on our North Shore Hospital campus, including the construction of Tōtara Haumaru, a new hospital building, due to open in 2024. Associated work has created a few traffic disruptions and we can’t guarantee you’ll find a parking space when you visit the site. That’s why we’re encouraging people, wherever possible, to use alternative transport. The Smales Farm bus interchange is a short walk away and there are bus stops outside the main entrance to North Shore Hospital. Click here for northern busway timetable information. Remember also that we offer a 20-minute grace period, allowing free drop-off and pick-up of patients.


Charges (Cash/Eftpos/Credit Card)

Charges apply 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.
Collect a parking ticket from the barrier when you arrive at the hospital. Take your ticket with you and pay before returning to your car.
