Data on the total pay and non-pay cost of car parking services, including leases, staffing, maintenance and external contracts is collected annually from the National Health Service through the Estates Return Information Collection. The method for collecting this data has changed and an average cannot be calculated. However, for 2018-19, the latest available period, the total annual cost to the NHS of car parking services was £71,170,922.
