NHS staff and visitors do not have to pay for parking at Peterborough city hospital or the Hinchingbrooke hospital until July. The charges have been suspended to support the NHS staff working hard to fight the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Caroline Walker, Chief Executive of North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Peterborough City and Hinchingbrooke Hospitals, said: “Given the unprecedented circumstances our staff are currently working in, we felt it was only right to waiver the car parking charges for all staff as well as our patients and visitors. 

“This is part of a range of measures we have been putting in place for our staff to support them while we are managing the rapidly-developing Covid-19 pandemic locally. This has included free refreshments, health and wellbeing resources and signposting to some great offers of help to NHS staff from local businesses. 

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our staff for their fantastic response. They have been working hard in incredibly challenging conditions and I am hugely proud of the professionalism and dedication they have shown in their care for patients and each other.” 

Earlier in the day, Peterborough City Hospital also updated its information for visitors. It has now placed new restrictions on people accompanying or visiting patients on the premises. 

From 24, March, the hospital management has restricted visitors to: 

  • End of life patients 

  • Delivery Suite - one birthing partner 

  • Pediatrics - one parent/carer only 

This step is being taken to protect patients and staff from the rapidly-developing spread of Coronavirus. 

The hospital and Pubic Health are urging people to keep following the guidelines issued that can help stop the spread of the virus.
