star this property answer text <p>The Department has not made any national assessment of the effect of parking charges on specific groups. Decisions on hospital car parking, including charging, are taken locally by National Health Service trusts and foundation trusts.</p><br /><p>On 23 August, 2014, the Department published the <em>NHS patient, visitor and staff car parking principles</em>, which set out a nationally consistent approach for hospitals to take to car parking and concessionary charges. Disabled people are explicitly mentioned as a group who should receive free or concessionary parking. The principles are:</p><br /><p>“NHS organisations should work with their patients and staff, local authorities and public transport providers to make sure that users can get to the site (and park if necessary) as safely, conveniently and economically as possible.<sup>1</sup></p><br /><p>Charges should be reasonable for the area.</p><p>Concessions, including free or reduced charges or caps, should be available for the following groups:</p><ul><li>disabled people<sup>2</sup></li><li>frequent outpatient attenders</li><li>visitors with relatives who are gravely ill, or carers<sup>3</sup> of such people</li><li>visitors to relatives who have an extended stay in hospital, or carers<sup>3</sup> of such people</li><li>carers<sup>3</sup> of people in the above groups where appropriate</li><li>staff working shifts that mean public transport cannot be used</li></ul><br /><p>Other concessions, eg for volunteers or staff who car-share, should be considered locally.</p><br /><p>Priority for staff parking should be based on need, eg staff whose daily duties require them to travel by car.<sup>4</sup></p><br /><p>Trusts should consider installing ‘pay on exit’ or similar schemes so that drivers pay only for the time that they have used. Additional charges should only be imposed where reasonable<sup>5 </sup>and should be waived when overstaying is beyond the driver’s control (eg when treatment takes longer than planned, or when staff are required to work beyond their scheduled shift).</p><br /><p>Details of charges, concessions and additional charges should be well publicised including at car park entrances, wherever payment is made and inside the hospital. They should also be included on the hospital website and on patient letters and forms, where appropriate.</p><br /><p>NHS trusts should publish:</p><ul><li>their parking policy</li><li>their implementation of the NHS car parking principles</li><li>financial information relating to their car parking</li><li>summarised complaint information on car parking and actions taken in response</li></ul><br /> Contracted-out car parking<p>NHS organisations are responsible for the actions of private contractors who run car parks on their behalf.</p><p>NHS organisations should act against rogue contractors in line with the relevant codes of practice<sup>6 </sup>where applicable.</p><p>Contracts should not be let on any basis that incentivises additional charges, eg ‘income from parking charge notices only’.”</p><br /><p>To help NHS organisations deliver the above principles the Department published <em>NHS Car Parking Management: Environment and Sustainability (HTM 07-03)</em> on 25 March 2015. This guidance is attached.</p><br /><p>Both documents make it clear that National Health Service organisations should work with patients, staff, visitors, local authorities and public transport providers when planning their parking provision.</p><p><em>Notes:</em></p><ol><li>Each site is different and very few will be able to provide spaces for everyone who needs one. Since 2010, national planning policy no longer imposes maximum parking standards on development, and no longer recommends the use of car parking charges as a demand management measure to discourage car use.</li></ol><br /><ol start="2"><li>Consideration should be given to the needs of people with temporary disabilities as well as Blue Badge holders.</li></ol><br /><ol start="3"><li>Carers are those as identified in the following:</li></ol><p>(i) Care Act 2014 section 10(3)</p><p>(ii) Children and Families Act 2014 section 96</p><p>(iii) Children and Families Act 2014 section 97</p><p>(iv) Carers (Recognition and Services) Act 1995</p><br /><ol start="4"><li>Such staff might include nurses or therapists who visit patients at home. Routine travel between hospital sites might more sensibly be managed by providing internal transport.</li></ol><br /><ol start="5"><li>‘Reasonable’ implementation of additional charges practice might include additional charges for people who do not have legitimate reasons for parking (eg commuters), or who persistently flout parking regulations (eg blocking entrances). A period of grace should normally be applied before a parking charge notice is issued.</li></ol><br /><ol start="6"><li>There are two trade associations: the British Parking Association and the Independent Parking Committee. If the car park operator is a member of either, their relevant code applies and an appeals service is available to motorists. NHS organisations should consider imposing a requirement for contractors to be members of such an association.</li></ol><p><strong></strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>NHS trusts have the power to charge for car parking under paragraph 20 of Schedule 4 of the National Health Service Act 2006. Foundation Trusts (FTs) have similar general powers under section 43(3) of the NHS Act 2006. Individual NHS organisations decide locally whether or not to institute charges and they also carry out any assessment of the impact of such charges.</p><br /><p>As part of an assessment, trusts consider a range of factors, including the availability of parking spaces, the existence of alternative transport options and the cost of providing car parking. Such matters vary from place to place and therefore cannot be centrally assessed.</p><br /><p>In addition, as public bodies, NHS organisations must ensure they are compliant with the public sector equality duty at Section 149 of the Equality Act 2010. The conduct of equality assessments is a local matter and the outcomes are not collected centrally.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The information is not collected in the format requested.</p><p>National Health Service car parking data including the number of NHS hospitals that charge for disabled car parking is collected annually through Estates Return Information Collection (ERIC).</p><p>All ERIC data is published at the following link:</p><p><a href="http://hefs.hscic.gov.uk/ERIC.asp" target="_blank">http://hefs.hscic.gov.uk/ERIC.asp</a></p><p>The 2016-17 figures show that out of 1,043 hospital sites that have designated disabled parking, 132 charge for disabled parking which includes disabled people, people with temporary disabilities as well as Blue Badge holders.</p><p>The provision of parking spaces and the level of any charges are matters for individual NHS trusts. NHS organisations must have the autonomy to make decisions that best suit their local circumstances.</p><p>The Department has published clear guidelines (the car parking principles) for National Health Service organisations that they are expected to follow.</p><p>Details of charges, concessions and additional charges should be well publicised including at car park entrances, wherever payment is made and inside the hospital. They should also be included on the hospital website and on patient letters and forms, where appropriate.</p><p>Hospitals should put concessions in place for those who most need help including disabled people, carers and staff who work shifts. The NHS itself is responsible for ensuring that charges are fairly applied. Patients, visitors and staff who have problems with car parking should therefore contact the NHS organisation which runs the car park.</p>
