NHS hospitals break parking fees record

BBC News 

NHS hospitals appear to be making more money than ever from parking fees. A report from the Press Association says hospitals in England collected more than £120m last year - up by 5%. Many trusts defended the charges, saying the money was put back into patient care or maintaining car parks. But the chief executive of the Patients Association said it was unfair that hospital parking in Wales and Scotland was largely free, while patients in England had to pay. Of the 120 trusts asked by PA, 89 responded to the Freedom of Information request on the charges.
