parking near LEEDS general infirmary, help needed please !

I have to attend somebody there and the NHS parking charges are extortionate, £2.60 upto two hours, £5.20 upto four hours and so on. Can somebody please suggest me any other place nearby where I can pay less than this hefty rip off. This will be really helpful as I might need to visit the hospital for a few days more couple of times in a day.

Rep will be added for any helpful comments.

Thanks

sorry, I forgot to mention that i dont live in Leeds locally, I have to drive from a suburban town-about 30 miles from the hospital, two times a day.

Speak to the Car Parking Team , they may do a Weekly pass for relatives of patients, I know our Hospitals do and its about 10 quid.

There are some multi stories such as the Merrion Centre and the light about a 5 min walk from the Hospital which are pay by card so you dont have to keep popping out to top up and only pay for what you use but unfortunately parking isnt cheap anywhere in Leeds!

Sorry mate, didn't know.

I thought the Government were gonna scrap charges in hospital car parks anyway?

Edit - sorry, this is proposed to happen in the next 3 years apparently.

the charges are strange a beast, they have detered many people from using free parking to go into town but then charges penalise the patients...............:?

If it is anything like my local hospital the car park will be run by a company and not the council.

Their parking tickets are not worth the paper they are printed on. Park where you like and ignore the ticket.
