Information on numbers of parking charge notices issued in hospital car parks is not held centrally. The independent appeals service Parking on Private Land Appeals (PoPLA) issues an annual report which contains information on overall numbers of parking charge notices issued and which is available at:

https://www.popla.org.uk/AnnualReport.htm

The Secretary of State for Transport, my right hon. Friend Mr McLoughlin, has not had any discussions with the Secretary of State for Health, my right hon. Friend Mr Hunt, on issues raised in appeals to PoPLA related to parking in hospital car parks.
