Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT) has announced that it will be providing free car parking at Lincoln, Grantham and Pilgrim hospitals for patients and visitors following problems with its new parking system.
Being in hospital at any time of year can be a worrying and stressful time but even more so over the festive season, so ULHT is removing the stress associated with the new system while its car parking provider works to resolve issues.
Parking will be free for patients and visitors until Monday 7 January.
Following the implementation of a new automatic number plate recognition parking (ANPR) system at the end of November, the Trust has experienced a number of delays and issues.
Following feedback from patients and visitors The Trust has decided to make parking free during this period.
Paul Boocock, Director of Estates and Facilities at ULHT said:
- Until Monday 7 January, patients and visitors will be able to park for free at Lincoln, Grantham and Pilgrim hospitals.
- Parking cameras will still be up and running and will be monitoring any inappropriate parking.
