Plans to revamp parking at Kidderminster Hospital
PAY and display could be axed at Kidderminster Hospital under plans to revamp parking at the site.
Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust say a full business plan outlining the changes will be drawn up in time for a board meeting on Wednesday, September 26.
According to the trust, the plans are in response to patient comments and could include replacing all pay and display areas with fast, reliable barrier and pay kiosk systems, allowing visitors to pay when they leave.
Plans also include increasing the amount of drop off points for visitors and changing the charging structure to allow visitors to pay by the hour. Currently, those parking at the hospital must pay for two-hour intervals.
Patients will be asked for their feedback and input into the plans and changes are expected to be made by the end of the year.
