Doctors and nurses facing high parking charges

Are they cashing in on those who care? Plans have been announced to triple parking charges for some hospital staff in Kent. Doctors, nurses and other workers could end up paying almost £700 a year to park at hospitals in Ashford, Canterbury and Margate.

The move has angered staff - but the NHS Trust responsible says it has no other choice. Tom Savvides talked to Frank Macklin, GMB Union; and Finbarr Murray, East Kent Hospitals NHS Trusts.
