Cross-trust Parking Fines

We're waiting for L Cutts to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust,

The BBC have today had stories about the cost of hospital parking. The matter is a serious one and a contentious issue. In the interests of true transparency on the issue I would like to request information about the trust’s benefits from fines issued within the carparks across the Trust’s sites.

Firstly how much income does the trust and it’s partner companies gain from the issuing of a parking fine at each site?

Secondly I wish to know how many fines have been issued at each site in the last year?

Thirdly what role does the trust play in the setting of the parking rules at each site & when an appeal is made what role does the trust play in assessing this?

How many of these fines have gone to debt collection agencies and County Court?

What percentage of fines are issued to staff/patients/visitors/contractors?

Yours faithfully,

L Cutts
