Long Stay Patients

EDM number 815 in 2017-19, proposed by Robert Halfon on 17/01/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Health services and Roads.

That this House notes that hospital parking charges are a huge burden for long-stay patients; further notes that the average weekly charge for parking in an NHS hospital in England is £38.47 and that some hospitals in England charge over £200 for a week of parking; recognises that many hospitals in England are able to offer free parking or concessions for long-stay patients, but notes that many hospitals do not offer such concessions for patients; and is therefore disappointed that NHS hospitals inflict this cost on those suffering from long-term illness.

This motion has been signed by a total of 7 MPs.
