By Metro

The nearest Metro station to the hospital is Tyne Dock.

By Car

At South Tyneside District Hospital we operate a paid car-parking system to keep our cark parks secure. If you are travelling by car, we advise you to allow plenty of time to find a parking space, as spaces aren’t always guaranteed. Parking for staff, patients and visitors is marked at various car parks on site. If you are a patient or visitor, we ask that you please refrain from parking in staff only areas.

By Bike

Cycle maps South Tyneside can be found at the following link: https://www.southtyneside.gov.uk/article/38169/Cycling

Folding bikes are allowed on the Metro at any time if fully folded.

Non-folding bikes can be taken on the Metro between Gateshead Stadium-South Shields/South Hylton (which includes Tyne Dock) Monday to Friday 10am-3pm, then after 7pm, and anytime at weekends. Each Metrocar has space for one non-folding bike located near the perch seat. The space is also used by wheelchair users and customers with pushchairs. Those users have priority.

Cycle Racks are provided on site.

Using an Older Person's Concession Travel Pass

Older person's concession travel passes are not usually valid before 9.30 am. However, if you do have an appointment in the morning and need to travel before 9.30 am, you are able to use earlier buses as long as you show your hospital appointment card or letter to the driver.

Car parking

Visitors to Haven Court can park free of charge in the car park located at the entrance of the building. Accessible via McAnany Avenue.
