I think the response may be a bit misleading - the Trust receives 100% of legitimate parking fees (pay station) but all penalties charges go to the car park management company.

Their website states - The Trust makes no money from penalty notice income which instead funds UKPC’s management cost - http://www.southportandormskirk.nhs.uk/c....
