Hospitals: Parking

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will issue guidance to NHS hospital trusts on charging their staff to park in trust car parks; and if he will make a statement. (325235)

The Department has issued guidance to the national health service on the operation of controlled car parking schemes ‘Income Generation: Car Parking Charges—Best Practice for Implementation’, a copy of which has been placed in the Library.

This guidance provides general advice on factors that should be considered when establishing a policy for staff car parking, but recognises that specific decisions need to be taken at a local level.
