The information is not available in the exact format requested.

Since 2001-02, the Department has collected annual data from national health service trusts on car parking provision and any associated charges through the Estates Returns Information Collection. The available data for each year since 2001-02 have been placed in the Library.

The information provided has been supplied by the NHS and has not been amended centrally. The accuracy and completeness of the information is the responsibility of the provider organisation.

The provision of hospital car parking and any associated charges are decided locally by individual NHS trusts to help cover the cost of running, maintaining and securing a car park. All NHS trusts should have exemption and concessionary schemes in place to ensure that patients and carers who visit hospital regularly are not disadvantaged. They should also have sustainable public transport plans in place for staff and visitors.
