Picking up patients

  • There is a 15 minute set down and pick up zone located at the front of the Queen Victoria Entrance, located between Sir Edwin Smith Avenue and Brougham Place.  Delays may occur when patients are being admitted or discharged so please ensure that your vehicle is only brought to the zone when the discharge process has been complete.  The set down and pick up spaces are a very scarce resource and the Hospital is conscious that this resource must be able to be accessed in a fair and equitable manner by those members of the community who are in the most need.  Parking fines apply in this area.
