Subject:       Drop-off parking charges at hospitals

          

 

Request:

I’d like to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act about parking charges at hospitals run by your trust.

Do the hospitals have any free parking drop-off zones, for example if someone is dropping a patient off at an appointment? Are there any rules around using these drop-off zones (for example, is there a maximum time drivers are able to wait, or is it only for patients with blue badges etc)?

If there are no free drop-off zones (or their use is restricted), what would be the cost to park in each hospital’s car park for 15 minutes in order to drop off a patient?

 

 

Response:       

Section 21 – information already reasonably accessible

This exemption applies if the information requested is already accessible to the requester. You could apply this if you know that the requester already has the information, or if it is already in the public domain.
