Give NHS staff free hospital parking
Provide government funding to make hospital parking free indefinitely for all NHS staff
Why is this important?
NHS employees have spent months working to keep us safe. That’s why the government stopped charging parking fees to these key workers during the height of the pandemic. Before that, NHS employees in England and Northern Ireland were charged as much as £40 a day on parking fees.
The cost of parking is already a strain on the wages of many NHS workers - but leaked documents suggesting that the charges could be returning soon, and that when they do, they could be even higher than ever.
Our NHS staff - who have sacrificed so much over the last few months - deserve better. So, will you sign the petition now, and send a clear message to Matt Hancock: that NHS staff in England and Northern Ireland should not have to pay for parking while they work.
