What does this means: Parking charges have been suspended at the hospital since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. The agreements to take the car parks into public hands will mean this becomes permanent.

Health secretary Humza Yousaf said: “We all owe a huge debt of gratitude to our NHS workforce for their heroic efforts throughout the pandemic and this will ensure that, along with patients and visitors using our hospitals, they will not face the prospect of parking charges returning.
