Stop Ipswich hospital reducing staff car parking

Stop Ipswich hospital reducing staff car parking

Ipswich hospital nhs trust are massively reducing the number of on site staff car parking spaces at the hospital. The estate and facilities department at Ipswich hospital have released a letter to inform staff of the changes 10 days before they come into effect - the majority of staff feel this is totally unacceptable.

Why is this important?

Not only do staff already have to pay to park at work they are now expected to park a 20 minute walk away from the hospital. This will mean members of staff walking often alone in the dark and cold/wet weather to their cars before and after a 12 hour shift.

Reasons for signing

  • I live near hospital and we already have to put up with staff parking all day outside our houses and this will only get worse. It stops us having visitors and a lot of residents are elderly and don't go out. It akso blocks road for emergency vehicles
  • There aren’t even enough spaces in the car park which is a 20 minute walk away. This is is not acceptable for the many staff who aren’t on a public transport route.
  • Hospital workers should be able to park on site and be safe when walking into work. Always am able to find parking space. No need to remove staff parking.
