Staff charged £15 a day for hospital car parking

  • Comment
Nurses at Addenbrooke’s Hospital are being forced to pay up to £15 a day to park their cars within hospital grounds, after Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust increased car-parking charges by 30%.

Figures obtained under the Freedom of Information Act show that the trust has raked in £922,068 in six months from staff, patients and visitors since it increased fees in April.

A trust spokesperson said fees covered running costs and was not profit. ‘If we didn’t charge, that money it would have to come out of our clinical care budget,’ he said.

Support NT’s ‘Free Parking: clamp down on unfair charges for nurses’ campaign by signing our petition to the prime minister.
