Ban car parking charges in hospital car parks

Hospitals in England made a record £174m last year (2016-2017) in charging for parking, an investigation has found.
Hospital parking charges are an entirely unfair and unnecessary burden, which disproportionately affect the most vulnerable people.
The vast sums of money that hospitals are making from parking charges reveal the hidden cost of healthcare faced by many patients and their families.
Hospital car park charges amount to a tax on sickness, with people who are chronically ill or disabled bearing the brunt.
Something must be done to limit or ban the car parking charges in hospitals, which can add an additional stressful element to a hospital visit.
