Staff pay a monthly salary sacrifice for parking permits for onsite parking at Princess Alexandra Hospital, Hamstel road, Harlow, Essex. 

It has always been felt by staff/patients and visitors that staff should not have to pay for parking. However, recently the new implementation of ANPR car parking system run by Car Parking Partnership has created continual problems with staff receiving a bombardment of fines despite paying daily or monthly for their parking. The company are waiving the fines on a case by case basis, but for example one member of staff has received 32 fines for just a few weeks. Despite them wiping these case by case there is still no resolution and staff continue to receive £100 fines for each shift they work. The reality of staff missing payments on these fines could result in a County Court Judgement. This problems has been raised multiple times to the trust by staff, complaints raised and yet there is no end in sight. 

At a time when some staff are struggling to make ends meet and using food banks, this has only highlighted the fact that staff are having to pay a premium to park at their place of work. 

The scrapping of paying to park to come to work would improve moral, staff retention and put an end to the constant fines and disputes over parking.
