£1m hospital car park row

26th November 2008

Increased parking charges at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge have raised almost £1m in fees from patients, staff, and visitors in six months.

The hospital said that money from the 2,000 space car park, which is self-financing, is reinvested in security but the hospital does not benefit directly. Charges increased recently by 30p to £1.80 for an hour's parking and £15 for eight hours, compared to £12.50 last year. Geoff Heathcock, Liberal Democrat spokesman for health on Cambridgeshire County Council, raised concerns about the parking charges.
