Hospital Car Parking (No.7)

EDM number 207 in 2014-15, proposed by Robert Halfon on 02/07/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Health services and Roads.

That this House notes that hospital parking charges can be a huge burden on patients and visitors at a vulnerable time in their lives; further notes that Nottingham City Hospital and Queen's Medical Centre charge £4.00 for one hour of parking, that Royal Free Hospital, Guy's Hospital, St Thomas's Hospital, and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital charge £6.00 for two hours of parking, that Royal Free Hospital, Guy's Hospital, St Thomas's Hospital and South Bristol Community Hospital charge £12.00 for four hours of parking, that Royal Free Hospital charges £72 for one day of parking and £504.00 for one week of parking; recognises that these charges are disproportionate and onerous for patients; therefore condemns these hospitals and others which charge similar fees; and urges the Government to consider ways to reduce the cost of hospital parking.

This motion has been signed by a total of 18 MPs.
