Travel Information

Rail Disruption

You may already be aware that RMT Union has announced its intention that, on 21, 23 and 25 June 2022, 50,000 rail workers across the UK will take part in industrial action in the form of a strike if no agreement is reached before then.

Please be aware, this is likely to cause severe disruption to travel in the week of the NHS Scotland Event in Aberdeen. We would therefore strongly advise that, if you are planning to travel to the NHS Scotland Event by train, you check the impact of this on your planned travel arrangements – or consider an alternative mode of transport. 

For information on train services and the impact of planned industrial action, visit: www.scotrail.co.uk

For information on bus times, we would recommend you visit Traveline Scotland

If you decide to travel by car, please consider car sharing with colleagues to help reduce our carbon footprint. Given the potential disruption to rail travel, we have negotiated a 50% reduction in parking charges at the P&J Live.

Special car parking rates are available to NHS Scotland Event delegates.  You must book to obtain the preferential rates.  Bookings can be made prior to Event and during the Event days.

*If you have parked on Monday 20 June, you must make a separate booking to obtain the preference rate for this single day. Bookings must be made prior to Event or up to 3pm on Tuesday 21 June.

21 June £7.00
22 June £7.00
21 and 22 June £14.00

The 727 is a regular service (every 15 minutes) and runs all day and night (except between 3am and 4am)

Delegates should present their Event passes to the drivers or provide evidence of their Event booking on a mobile device to receive the complimentary travel from Monday 20 – Wednesday 22 June.
