Car parking update at Hillingdon Hospital
New parking arrangements and charges:
Fines for parking transgressions are being levied - £35 if paid within 14 days or £50 if not then paid. 12 hour tickets are being extended to 14 hours to accommodate staff working 12 hour shifts. There have been some complaints from people who previously parked on grass outside proper parking spaces.
New publicity posters about parking charges:
A3 laminated posters are to be displayed in both hospitals, noting the new tariffs but also showing the concessions for frequent attenders, wheither as visitors or as patients.
Parking ticket machines at the Woodlands Centre, Hillingdon:
A review of ticket machines in that area will be undertaken with a view to improving the provision.
Staff car sharing events:
Events are being held to introduce staff to other staff members who might possibly be able to share travel arrangements. These events will take place on 9th February and 13th March at Hillingdon Hospital and on 23rd February and 15th March at Mount Vernon.
Additional staff car parking:
The Crown in Colham Green Road, Hillingdon, has changed its policy and is now in discussion with the Trust about the possibility of providing some staff parking on that site – good news for everyone if it succeeds, as every staff member parking off-site leaves an additional parking space for patients and visitors.
