To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment his Department has made of the potential impact of the reintroduction of hospital car parking charges on NHS staff who have no other means of getting to work; and if he will take steps to permanently exempt hospital car parking charges for NHS staff.

No assessment has been made. Free parking in hospital car parks for National Health Service staff was temporarily introduced for the duration the pandemic. This measure ended from 1 April 2022. However, 97% of NHS trusts which charge for car parking have implemented free parking for those in greatest need, including NHS staff working overnight.
