I saw on the news that NHS staff were to be given free parking at work. I would have thought that should have been a given but I then read that it took a 400,000 signature petition to get it through. These brave people who are putting others before themselves deserve better, they should be paid expenses for daily travel, free lunches etc etc

Used to get charged to park when I worked for the NHS. It never bothered me to be honest and most of the staff weren’t bothered either.

Perhaps you were not paying too much but imagine what the NHS staff in London are charged for parking. It can cost a patient £3 an hour or more in some hospitals.

At Barnsley Hospital staff can get a £10 ticket for the week.

My Mrs works for the NHS, I think she pays 80p to park for the duration of her shift. May not sound much but add it up over a month / year. The stupid thing is the staff have to display a parking permit in the window to show that they are staff anyway so why charge them? Surely displaying the permit is enough.
