10 January 2020

The Government has announced that from April 2020, all 206 hospital trusts in England will be expected to provide free car parking to groups that may be frequent hospital visitors, or those disproportionately impacted by daily or hourly charges for parking, including:

  • blue badge holders
  • frequent outpatients who have to attend regular appointments to manage long-term conditions

Free parking will also be offered at specific times of day to certain groups, including:

  • parents of sick children staying in hospital overnight
  • staff working night shifts
