Campaigners in the Midlands have issued a fresh call for parking charges at hospitals to be scrapped, claiming it is 'unfair' to place an extra burden on people and families already suffering with illness.
A report by the Health and Social Care Information Centre reveals the average cost of parking at a hospital is £1.15 per hour - but some, including Midland hospitals, charge much more than this.
Birmingham Women's NHS Foundation Trust charges £2.70 per hour.
It comes after Coventry University Hospital lifted a cap on the amount of money it could demand from people for parking earlier this year.
