Parking | Chris O'Brien Lifehouse
Chris O'Brien Lifehouse Carpark Entrance

A 15 minute drop-off zone operates directly outside the main entrance to Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse provides subsidised parking for patients attending appointments at Lifehouse. Parking tickets must be validated at appointment reception.

Due to demand, we need to ensure enough parking is available for our patients. We are unable to provide subsidised parking for visitors, or for patients attending appointments at places other than Lifehouse.


Parking for patients (or carers driving them) is capped at a maximum charge if they need to attend treatment or appointments for more than five hours.
