"Car Parking Charges"

About: Dewsbury & District Hospital

I visit Dewsbury Hospital on a regular basis for appointments and was happy to pay the £1.30 for the first hour but today I went and found that the price had risen to a whopping £2 for the first hour!!!!! I understand that the NHS is in need of money but this isn't a fair price rise it has nearly doubled surely it would if a price rise was needed then £1.50 would have been better and fairer!

I don't have a lot of money available due to being a pensioner and it is a big chunk out of the weekly amount that I have to work with.

Response from Dewsbury & District Hospital

We appreciate that this is a sensitive issue as price rises will always be unpopular. The Trust did prepare a detailed press release explaining the rationale behind the changes and circulated this prior to the introduction of the changes.
