Researcher Leo Ewbank appeared on BBC Look North to discuss hospital parking charges. He argued that providing parking facilities costs money and trusts face a choice about how to finance this: ask patients to make a contribution or use central resource which we would otherwise be used to provide patient care.
He highlighted making hospital parking free across the board could lead to hospital car parks being used by people not visiting the hospital. This could make it more difficult for patients to park at hospitals.
