Parking outside Fairmore Medical Practice in Nelson

Volume 596: debated on Monday 8 June 2015

The Petition of residents of Nelson,

Declares that the Petitioners believe patients of Fairmore Medical Practice of 211-213 Leeds Road, Nelson are having difficulty finding suitable parking places near the practice, and that the Petitioners believe there is a vacant site on Leeds Road, Nelson near the practice that could be used as a car park facility.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to support the Fairmore Medical Practice Patient Participation Group in securing additional parking spaces and to encourage NHS England to reconsider their funding request to support extending car parking facilities at Leeds Road.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Andrew Stephenson, Official Report, 25 March 2015; Vol. 594, c. 1543.]

[P001485]

Observations from the Secretary of State for Health:

This is a matter for local determination. It is for NHS England locally to decide whether funding additional parking spaces near Fairmore Medical Practice is an appropriate use of public money.
