Petition Scrap car parking charges at NHS Hospitals in England
Hospital car parking charges affect the vulnerable, visitors of ill relatives and hardworking NHS staff. The fees are a major cause of social injustice.
Join the campaign to get this stealth tax scrapped, once and for all.
The NHS should be free at the point of access but hospitals charge up to £300 for a week of parking.
In 2014, the Government introduced guidance suggesting free or reduced parking should be available for staff, blue badge holders and visitors of gravely ill relatives.
Since then, 47% of hospitals have increased their hourly parking charges and almost half still charge blue badge holders.
The campaign is supported by FairFuelUK, CLIC Sargent and Headway.
