Lib Dems dig up data on hospital parking charges

A few weeks ago the Liberal Democrats used Freedom of Information powers to find out figures for all hospitals. Our ongoing investigation managed to get hold of the raw data in spreadsheet format. According to that, Good Hope Hospital took £840,000 from parking charges in 07/08 – £700k from patients and £140k from staff. The previous year’s neat figure of £700,000 was made up of £576k from patients and £124k from staff.

The difference represents an increase of 20%. Looked at separately, a 13% rise in staff parking charges and 21.5% in patient parking charges.

If you want to help me find out more, post a comment and I can invite you to the investigation.
