VICTORY! - 4 Hours Of Free Parking Agreed At Knutsford Hospital

Cheshire East NHS Trust are planning to impose parking charges from £2.20 to £5.50 on visitors to Knutsford Community Hospital from April 2015.

UPDATE - Cheshire East NHS Trust agree to 4 HOURS of free parking at Knutsford Hospital due to this petition and Lib Dem Campaigning.  More detail here:

The hospital is used by many patients with chronic health conditions that require regular tests, meaning some people could pay large amounts in parking charges over the year.  It amounts to a tax for being ill.  Furthermore, all revenue from fines imposed goes to ParkingEye, the contractor managing the site, not the hospital.

Cheshire East NHS trust meet on the 29th January to make a final decision on whether to implement these charges, we plan to deliver the petition before this meeting and if possible Gareth will speak on behalf of the patients.

We the undersigned, urge Cheshire East Trust to reconsider imposing parking charges at Knutsford Community Hospital and keep parking free, as it has been for many years.

    Absolutely outrageous to charge people who are going to hospital.

    I strongly object to the proposal regarding parking charges at Knutsford Hospital. Not only will it make difficult situations more difficult for some people but it has the potential to cause parking chaos on roads in the vicinity of the hospital
