I am aware of what Hugh Henry describes as the furore that NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde's proposals have caused. I am also aware that national health service boards, including NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, are operating within the guidance that the previous Administration issued on car parking charges. I have expressed openly my concern about aspects of car parking policy. That is why I have set up a review group to examine the guidance and to submit recommendations for change to me. I hope that that will produce a much better balance between the pressures that NHS boards face and ensuring fairness and equity for patients, visitors and the wider public.
