Patient Safety

For information on the steps we are taking to keep our patients safe click here.

Restricting visitors to our hospital

To minimise exposure during the COVID-19 pandemic, visitors are not allowed into the hospital except in exceptional circumstances. This means if someone drives you to the hospital for your appointment they will not be able to accompany you into the hospital.

After your appointment they can collect you but will not be able to come inside of the hospital. All of our hospitals have parking facilities and we would encourage you to re-join them in the car park. If you need additional help a member of the BMI team will support you.

BMI The Meriden Hospital has a private car park for BMI staff patients, and their visitors (GREEN, highlighted below). The car park is ANPR monitored, and each vehicle must be registered at reception per visit upon arrival. The area highlighted in BLUE belongs to UHCW hospital and not BMI Healthcare.

A receptionist will ask you to state your vehicle registration and this will enable you to park free of charge. This process must be completed each time you arrive and leave the hospital. Failure to undertake these steps will result in a £100 parking fine.

If you receive a fine and believe it is an error, please call the hospital in the first instance.
