Extend Free Parking for NHS Staff
"It is deeply insulting that the Govt are not extending the hospital car parking relief to our hard-working NHS staff" Gareth Thomas MP
Petition: EXTEND FREE NHS STAFF HOSPITAL PARKING
During the past year of the pandemic, it was a significant and very welcome step to make hospital car parking charges free to NHS staff, for example at Northwick Park Hospital. At a time when we are seeing enormous levels of burnout in the workforce and an effective real-terms salary cut – it is completely the wrong move by the Government to scrap free parking for NHS and care staff from 21st June.
We need a commitment to extend the relief of hospital car parking charges beyond the pandemic. With waiting lists reaching new heights of 5 million and many waiting over 12 months for urgent care, I want to present a petition to the Secretary of State for Health to push for an extension of parking relief.
These charges are unfair for our hardworking NHS staff as they embark on providing a backlog of care to our community and beyond. If you support, please join this campaign:
