Motion text

That this House notes that 46 per cent of respondents in the most recent National Patient Choice Survey rated car parking as one of the factors in choosing a hospital; recognises that patients should be free to focus solely on getting the best care; is therefore disappointed that so many hospitals choose to charge patients to access a vital national service; and therefore urges the Government to consider ways to reduce the cost of hospital parking.
