Hospital Car Parking And NHS Staff

EDM number 1463 in 2017-19, proposed by Robert Halfon on 27/06/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Health services, Health staff and professions and Roads.

That this House appreciates the ongoing and dedicated hard work by all NHS staff, from porters to doctors to janitors; notes the Department of Health and Social Care guidance, entitled NHS patient, visitor and staff car parking principles, first published in 2014; further notes its suggestion to NHS trusts to introduce concessionary parking rates for staff working shifts that mean public transport cannot be used; notes that much of the hospital workforce cannot rely on public transport to get to work, due to unsociable shift patterns or a rural location; is appalled that almost a third of hospitals still charge staff up to £80 a week to park; and urges the Government to introduce legislation to end car parking charges at NHS hospitals in England.

This motion has been signed by a total of 10 MPs.
