On-site car parking is available.
Disabled parking is available.
The hospital does have several pay and display car parks for those who wish to bring their cars. Spaces are limited, however, and parking can be difficult, especially on days when many clinics are running. Parking on nearby streets is often very restricted. The hospital does have a drop-off area and reserved bays for those with a disability parking permit.

The gastroenterology team has been at the forefront of developing a bowel cancer screening programme for people aged 60 to 69 living in east and north Hertfordshire, with surgical colleagues leading on introducing laparoscopy (key hole) bowl surgery, including for cancer.
