Staff protest at NHS parking fees

3rd July 2007

Workers at a Welsh hospital have protested against the introduction of £120-a-year car parking charges.

Gwent NHS Trust has brought in staff fees at Ysbyty'r Tri Chwm in Ebbw Vale, and may do the same at Newport’s Royal Gwent and Nevill Hall in Abergavenny, saying the money would be used to improve security at the site for patients and hospital workers. But staff say parking should be free at hospitals throughout Wales.

The trust defended the move and pointed out that charging for car parking is now standard practice in virtually every trust in south Wales.
