A new website will enable NHS staff, health and social care workers and NHS volunteers (critical care workers) to find free parking locations quickly and easily.
The new site www.nhs-freeparking.co.uk contains more than 1 million parking spaces at car parks, privately owned spaces and driveways.
This platform has been designed to support the government’s COVID-19 free parking scheme for these critical workers. It is hoped that this will allow them to save time as they focus on supporting the national effort.
In a number of easy steps the site shows how to locate available free parking and whether registration or a pass is needed to confirm eligibility.
The steps are very simple:
1. Visit the site www.nhs-freeparking.co.uk
2. Click “Search Now”
3. Enter your desired destination
4. Select your preferred parking location
5. Check and read instructions – you may need to register in advance
The new site is a joint collaboration between the British Parking Association and its members Parkopedia, YourParkingSpace and JustPark and supported by the wider parking community.
A BPA spokesperson said “Members of the British Parking Association are focusing attention on doing the right thing to help in this national emergency, using our expertise and resources in the most effective manner. The new search facility will help NHS staff and critical care workers easily find available free parking close to where they need to be. It is one less thing for these amazing healthcare workers to worry about and can save time when their focus is on saving lives.”
