Staff, patients and vistors are facing huge price hikes in car-parking charges at Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
Staff face a daily increase from £7 to £15 which is a staggering 114% rise.
Patients and visitors face a 30 Pence per hour rise from £1.30 to £1.60 a 23% rise.
A spokesperson for Scotland's Worst Drivers said: "Parking at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh should be less, not more.
"I can't work out why consort feel this move is a good one. Sure, staff can use public transport however some work 12+ hour shifts, and finish in the small hours of the morning when public transport is far and few between, if they can get a bus home!
"Do consort not get enough money from the PFI contract in the first place without upping the parking prices for everyone, including those who safe life's?
"We call on consort to reverse this plan and scrap it for good."
