How to find us
Weston Park Cancer Centre, Whitham Road, Sheffield S10 2SJ
Weston Park Cancer Centre is about a 25 minute walk from Sheffield city centre. Whilst we do have some car parking spaces available at the Centre at busy times it can be difficult to park and so if possible we recommend public transport is the best way to travel to Weston Park Cancer Centre.
We provide clinics and services on several sites so check your appointment letter for the address of the site you need to visit.
We are well served by a number of bus services and close to the tram route. Use Travel South Yorkshire’s www.travelsouthyorkshire.com to plan your journey from anywhere in the UK to the Centre.

Car park app.
Our car park operator Indigo UK has recently been acquired by a Spanish operator called Saba. Over time you’ll see the Park Indigo App change to Saba. Users won’t need to delete and download a new app as the Saba branded app will be set as an automatic update in the App Stores. Likewise, you’ll see changes on the website too but you’ll still be able to purchase parking via the app and website.
If you would like to use this payment method simply download the Saba Parking App (formerly Indigo) for free from the iTunes App store or Google Play for Android devices https://www.sabaparking.co.uk/app. After creating an account and filling in the payment method, select the car park you are parked in and choose your required parking time. You can extend your parking time remotely from your mobile if you need to stay longer.
Important car parking note:
Please be aware that parking charge notices are in operation at Weston Park Cancer Centre. This is to ensure that ambulances and other emergency services have free access to the hospital at all times and that people not visiting the Centre do not take up parking spaces. To avoid being issued with a parking charge notice please make sure that your car is parked in a designated parking space and display a valid parking pass or ticket.
We do understand that there can be occasions where you may be delayed by us or the length of your treatment.
