More parking for hospital staff

December 3, 2018 1:05 PM

Work has begun on a new 600 place car park for staff at the Royal Derby Hospital. Most staff who now park on site will be able to park in the new car park.

This will leave more space for patients and visitors by the hospital. That should mean fewer cars parked all day just beyond the 'residents only' parking areas.

Across the NHS there are lots of job vacancies, so hopefully this car park will be enough. The Lib Dem spokesperson for Derby North, Barry Holliday said "Since the Brexit referendum lots of EU staff have left the NHS and very few are now applying for jobs. This means some operations and other appointments are being cancelled and people must wait longer for treatment.

"The Leave campaign said Brexit would be good for the NHS, but it's turning out to be a disaster."
