North Norfolk Labour Party is campaigning against the rise in car parking fees at the local Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, and wants to see the increase scrapped, as well as an end to car parking fees at our local hospitals.

We believe that car parking charges in NHS hospitals are a tax on sickness, and may well reduce the number of visits that people make to their sick and lonely loved ones when they are most vulnerable.

Furthermore, we consider the collection of revenues by profit-making private companies to be incompatible with the not for profit ethos of the NHS. We also object to the such charges being imposed on NHS staff.

We note that there are no such car parking charges in hospitals in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and we are calling for hospitals in England to follow suit.

The news that the local Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is to increase car parking charges is disappointing, and we believe a step in the wrong direction.

Please sign and share the petition on the right handside of this website. There will also be an event in North Walsham Market Place on Saturday 26 November from 10.00am where we will be petitioning residents on this issue.

    It’s unbelievable that my wife as a nurse in the hospital has to pay £12 a day for parking when she goes there to work. Rip off!!!

    To get to Norfolk and Norwich hospital costs petrol which has gone up then to pay high parking fees. Expensive day out. As you always have to wait a lot longer past your appointment time .

    Car park charges are appalling, nobody goes to a hospital to spend hours on end for the sake of somewhere to park – they are there for treatment or to visit a sick friend/relative. It’s a visit out of love and compassion, or a necessity to attend a medical consultation. Parking at the NNUH is frequently impossible- I’ve heard the people have lost their appointments because of it. Something has to be done – and soon

    You can never park either and prices have recently gone up to £3 for two hours – recently I was behind a lady who was 31 minutes so as first 30 minutes are free it cost her £3 for 1 minute !

    If the money raised actually went back to the NHS it would not be so bad, but just for profiteering business to increase profits is abysmal
