Minister For Health Urged To Address Hospital Car Parking Charges

Current charges have been desribed as exploitation of sick patients and their families.

Information obtained by Sinn Fein’s health spokesperson Louise O’Rielly shows that from the latest data available, Hospitals collected 60-thousand euro a day in parking charges in 2017. 

Cork University hospital which runs its own car park, took in €3.1 million, the highest nationwide. That’s followed by Saint Vincent’s hospital privately operated car park, which generated 2.5 Million.

Loughlinstown hospital, which is also privately operated, brought in just under €142,000, while Saint Michaels in Dun Laoghaire, which runs its own relatively small car park, brought in over €135,000.
