Scrap NHS parking charges now

I was shocked to read that Pennine Acute have made so much money from charging patients, carers and staff to park at their hospitals in the last year. 

I appreciate that there are some concessions in place for blue badge holders and patients attending for certain treatments, but the system is confusing and regardless of whatever concessions are in place the fact is that people in need of treatment, people visiting a loved one, and the staff responsible for providing care, are having £3million taken out of their pockets for the privilege.

Parking fees have been scrapped in Scotland and Wales and what’s good enough for them should be good enough for us in England.

The Labour Party have pledged to scrap all car parking fees when we form the next government and that can’t come soon enough for NHS patients and staff.
