Growing Concerns Around Unmanageable Parking Costs For NHS Workers

The Government has and continues to reject calls to make car parking permanently free for all NHS workers. In July 2020, the Prime Minister confirmed that NHS staff would receive free car parking for the duration of the pandemic but reiterated that this was always intended to be a time-limited measure at a time of unprecedented demand. Free parking for NHS staff was rescinded in April 2022 and reportedly cost around £130 million during the pandemic.
