High prices for parking at hospitals may soon be a thing of the past, as MPs gear up to examine the controversial measure.
Despite recent government guidelines in which the Health Secretary vowed to crackdown on hospital parking costs, MPs are claiming some visitors face fees of up to £500 per week.
A campaign lead by the Conservative MP Robert Halfon exposed the varying degree in cost relatives face when visiting sick loved ones.
Mr Halfon launched almost 400 Freedom of Information (FoI) requests and found London had the highest charges, with an average of £20 a day and more than £130 a week.
The lowest charges were in the East Midlands, where parking costs were £3.50 per day and £11 per week.
