Coronavirus: Free car parking charges at Peterborough City Hospital
Patients, staff and visitors to a major hospital will be able to park for free due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Parking charges at Peterborough City Hospital have been suspended until July when the situation will be reviewed.
Chief executive of North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, Caroline Walker, said: “Given the unprecedented circumstances our staff are currently working in, we felt it was only right to waiver the car parking charges for all staff as well as our patients and visitors.
“This is part of a range of measures we have been putting in place for our staff to support them while we are managing the rapidly-developing covid-19 pandemic locally.
"This has included free refreshments, health and wellbeing resources and signposting to some great offers of help to NHS staff from local businesses.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our staff for their fantastic response. "They have been working hard in incredibly challenging conditions and I am hugely proud of the professionalism and dedication they have shown in their care for patients and each other.”
