Hospital parking charges anger

28th May 2008

Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge has been accused of “taxing the ill? after it emerged that it made £248,000 in a single month from parking charges.

Throughout 2008, the hospital is expected to make £2.98 million from parking fees though it insists the money is reinvested in security and transport. A significant portion of that amount is paid by its own staff. The news comes after the Patients’ Association said that hospitals across England made about £100m last year from their car parks.
