The Government provided some cheer with the news that some are to be exempt from hospital parking fees.

However, it does not go far enough. Blue Badge holders were already exempt anyway, so nothing to see here.

Staff and most visitors are not exempt, meaning expensive trips to visit loved ones.

Parking companies rake in the money, and the NHS gets little from the profit is.

The best solution, is to scrap fees altogether, right Matt?
