Scrap Parking Fees at Darlington Memorial Hospital
Car parking charges were re-imposed at County Durham and Darlington Trust Hospitals on Monday 5th July with little notice. Staff, patients and visitors now have to pay a minimum £3 to park.
Car parking charges are a tax on the sick, their families and hard-working NHS staff. The majority of hospital parking is already free to staff in Scotland and Wales.
Parking charges should be scrapped, providing free hospital parking. We call on the Government to properly fund the NHS, so Hospital Trusts do not have to penalise staff, patients and visitors.
