Nick responds to Health Secretary’s consultation on hospital parking charges

January 4, 2010

Nick Perry, the Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Hastings & Rye, who has spearheaded a campaign against hospital parking charges at the Conquest Hospital said,

“Our Labour MP said to me at the Town Conference earlier this year that he did not think hospital parking charges was a big issue. I think it is a big issue for local people, and I am glad that the Secretary of State has acknowledged the ‘great resentment’ that these charges cause.

“Having said this, I do not believe Andy Burnham’s consultation goes far enough in its proposals: there should be a more robust plan for tackling the charges faced by outpatients and by staff.

“I remain committed to fighting for an NHS which is free at the point of delivery”, he said.
