We are asking Jeremy Hunt to exert his power to either take these car parks under the hospitals control and make they free or have a cap on charges of £1/hour.
Why is this important?
Most people visiting hospitals are either ill and therefore vulnerable or visiting a loved one. They are being punished by the car parking companies. These companies are often third parties not under the hospitals control and taking advantage of poorly people.
The rise of hospital car parking charges is an an unaffordable level for many now. A 35 minute hospital visit to High Wycombe costs £3.50. For people on lower incomes or people visiting relatives with long term illnesses this is simply unfair and non sustainable. cool
