THE BIG QUESTION
The big question: should NHS staff pay to park at work?
A healthcare assistant has set up a petition calling for free parking for NHS staff.
The e-petition, which has been signed by more than 17,400 people, demands immediate action to end “disgraceful” parking charges for NHS workers and nurses in particular.
“Nurses are on our wards 12 hours a day and do not need the added stress of being charged for parking to do a job the whole country needs them to do,” it states.
The petition was started by HCA Abigail Smith who said she launched the campaign because she felt frontline staff should not have to pay to park at work.
