The message has been clear in recent months that a £4 minimum car charge to park at our hospitals simply isn’t considered reasonable. In an ideal world we wouldn’t charge for parking at our hospitals. However, we fund our car parks and free shuttle bus service for patients, visitors and staff from income we make from car parking charges to protect NHS money for patient care. Money raised from car parking is also used to cover costs of maintenance, security and lighting that keeps our car parks safe.”

– Shaun Kerfoot, Interim Director of Estates and Facilities at NUH

The lower tariffs will reduce from 1st November as follows:

  • 0-15 mins Current Charge: £4 New Charge: FREE
  • 16mins-1 hour Current Charge: £4 New Charge: £2
  • 1-2 hours Current Charge: £4 New Charge: £4
  • 2-4 hours Current Charge: £5 New Charge: £5
  • Over 4 hours Current Charge: £6 New Charge: £6
  • 1 week (7 days) Current Charge: £15 New Charge: £15

Residential Home owners statement over care investigation

The owners of a residential home in Nottingham being investigated after a family filmed the care given to a relative have released a statement.

Avery Healthcare say they are grateful to the family "for bringing these incidents of unsatisfactory conduct to our attention".

Avery is working closely and cooperatively with social services and the CQC to facilitate their investigations. One of the concerns in the sector is what happens behind closed doors and the role played by covert video cameras has been the subject of debate for some time. We provide comprehensive training and support to all our staff and the vast majority are kind and caring in a profession that bears a heavy responsibility looking after vulnerable older people. Nevertheless, there are a very small number of staff who do not uphold those standards of personal conduct.
