Pledge on hospital parking charges

30th December 2009

Health secretary Andy Burnham has outlined proposals to phase out hospital parking charges for inpatients and some outpatients.

He has pledged a "fairer" system for relatives and friends of people admitted to hospital in England and said an eight-week consultation would ensure plans were affordable at a time of pressure on NHS finances. It will examine whether to abolish fees for all inpatients’ visitors or just those admitted long term. Parking is already free at most hospitals in Scotland and Wales and for certain priority groups of patients in Northern Ireland.
