"Very expensive parking - making money out of..."

About: Wexham Park Hospital

Currently I need regular - weekly if not twice weekly treatment- as from Dec. Until recently the minimum parking was £1.50 for post 20 mins - to 2 hours. I discovered this week it had gone up to £3.00. This is outrageous for a hospital. You can't help feeling that patients/visitors (not there because they want to be) are helping subsidize the lack of NHS funding. Please review this.

Response from Wexham Park Hospital

Thank you for your feedback regarding Car Park Tariff adjustments. I have shared your feedback with the manager responsible for car parking.

We have spent a significant amount of funding on car park upgrades at Wexham Park and there will be an additional 475 spaces available to visitors on completion of the project.

We are committed to providing an improved patient experience and we monitor the parking available daily and we have had positive feedback regarding the ability to find spaces since the work has begun and the weekly ticket option is still available for £15.

All of the revenue generated is re-invested in the car parks and in clinical areas again with patient experience the key objective for us.

Another reason for the tariff adjustment is so we align our prices with Frimley Park to ensure that charges are the same for patients on any of our 3 sites.

Thanks again for your feedback and hopefully the above explains why the adjustments have been made.

Kind Regards

Claire Marshall

Head of Patient Experience
