Location and Car Parking
Crawley Hospital is on West Green Drive:
Parking is very limited at Crawley Hospital. The pay and display car park costs £2 for up to 6 hours, and £10 for over 6 hours (£3 for patients). There are also paid car parking spaces just outside the hospital, along West Green Drive.
The hospital is, however, only 5 minutes’ walk from the large multi-storey car park on Orchard Street, which is open until 8pm every day except Sunday.
Crawley Hospital Radio Station
Crawley Hospital has its own radio station, Hospital Radio Crawley, on 1287 AM.
History and Ownership
A cottage hospital existed in Crawley from 1896 until the 1930s, when a district hospital was built on the site of Ifield Lodge in West Green. The current hospital was built on the same site in 1961. Extensions were added in the late 1960s and in 1981.
In the 1990s, Crawley Hospital’s accident and emergency and maternity services were transferred to the East Surrey Hospital in Redhill, and the opening of the new hospital in Haywards Heath led to an ultimately unsuccessful proposal to close the hospital in Crawley. The creation of a 24-hour walk-in centre in 2004 and an urgent treatment centre in 2007 restored accident and emergency treatment to Crawley Hospital.
Crawley Hospital is owned and run by the West Sussex Primary Care Trust. Some services are provided by the Surrey and Sussex Healthcare Trust. Ambulance services at Crawley Hospital are provided by the South East Coast Ambulance Service.
