Car parking charges are to increase at Nottingham's hospitals from 1 May 2013.

The price of two-hour, four-hour and 24-hour tariffs will rise by 10p for patients and visitors parking at Queen's Medical Centre and Nottingham City Hospital.

Daniel Mortimer from the Trust says,

"By funding our car parks and free Medilink bus service from the income we make from car parking charges, we protect NHS money for patient care....Increasing our charges is never going to be a popular decision.

"But the reality is that we, along with other hospitals and public sector organisations, face tough financial challenges and decisions."
