Hospital parking fee relief welcomed by pensioners

"CPSA welcomes the NSW Health Minister's moves to simplify and expand the parking concessions available at public hospitals across the state, which will ease the financial burden these parking fees place on patients and carers." said Ellis Blaikie, CPSA Policy Coordinator.

"One of the biggest issues with hospital parking fees to date has been inconsistency, so we're pleased to see that the concessions will apply to all NSW public hospitals, including those with privately operated parking lots.

"Patients and carers need to know what hospital parking fee concessions they may be eligible for and how to apply, so it's critical that this information is published around the hospital. We don't want people missing out on hospital parking fee concessions simply because they didn't realise what was available to them." said Ms Blaikie.
