Hospital parking is 'easier and safer for patients'

NHS Borders says its new parking arrangements at Borders General Hospital are permanent, despite complaints from staff.

Workers at the hospital have started parking on grass verges and in nearby villages to avoid fines after two of the hospital's six car parks were turned into short stay areas.

They've also started a social media campaign.

Hospital bosses say the changes make parking easier and safer for patients.

Calum Campbell, Chief Executive at NHS Borders spoke with ITV Border:
