Finally some better sense has prevailed vis-a-vis the parking for the NHS and social care staff who are in an all out battle against COVID-19 as the government today pledged to provide them free parking across all hospitals in the UK.
The government will cover the costs of providing free car parking to NHS staff working in hospitals during this unprecedented time, the Health Secretary has pledged today.
It comes as the Local Government Secretary has agreed local councils will also offer free car parking to all NHS workers and social care staff during the coronavirus outbreak.
In the face of this global pandemic it is essential NHS and social care staff are able to carry out their vital work without worrying about paying for car parking. Government is rightly committing to providing the financial backing NHS Trusts need to make this a reality in hospitals for the duration of this viral outbreak.
Now I am not sure if this is a deal or a discussion, but felt worthy of sharing here.
Hope it helps someone.
