Petition Action

Abolish car parking charges in NHS Trust Hospitals in England

Additional Information

The ethos of NHS at it's conception so many years was, "medical care free at the point of delivery". Years have past and every thing and every one has to change to keep up with the times but certain aspects of the NHS form it's core and the above statement is one of them. Patients attending A&E departments can't even think about getting their illness/injury treated before geting a car parking ticket for fear of a car park attendant harassing them about the car park ticket! Further why does England have the charges and not Wales and Scotland. Why are we in England subsidising the NHS for the people in Wales and Scotland.

This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

There's already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue.

You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.

There is already a petition about car parking charges for patients and the issue of different charges in England, Wales and Scotland is a devolved issue.
