Disabled parking charges 'unlawful'

7th December 2012

Leading disability rights lawyer Chris Fry has claimed that hospitals charging disabled drivers to park could be in breach of the law.

Thirty-seven NHS trusts charge disabled drivers to park, saying all drivers should be treated equally, but Mr Fry said this was a misreading of UK equality law. The Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro was the most expensive, charging £4.80 for two to four hours parking, while the cheapest was Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust, which charges £1 per visit.
