Shadow Health Minister Jamie Reed has responded to the increase of hospital parking charges, stating that the move is "bleeding dry families who are already suffering". Mr Reed said:
"These are stealth taxes on people already at a low ebb; families and patients, at what is already a difficult time in their lives, can be clobbered by car parking charges. It is no way for the NHS to meet its £20bn efficiency challenge - by bleeding dry families who are already suffering".
