Hospital Parking

The issue of Hospital Parking charges is a lively one in South Derbyshire. There have been some incidents with the frankly daft system currently in place at Burton Hospital, where visitors have to remember their own arrival time which isn't practical when people may be rushing to A&E for example. 

The Minister responding for the Department of Health, Dr Dan Poulter, mentioned the recently published principles that will under pin the guidelines on car parking to be published next Spring. 

I look forward to receiving these guidelines and continuing to support Helen Ashley, Chief Executive of Burton Hospital in her quest to make parking fairer for users of Burton Hospital.
