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.
If you are travelling here by bus, there are two bus stops on Harton Lane.
The following buses are accessible from these stops: 10,11,12,13,14,526,528,533,544 and X50.
We advise that you plan your bus journey using the latest information here: http://jplanner.travelinenortheast.info/

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.
