Free parking for NHS and social care workers in Lichfield
NHS staff and health and social care workers can now park for free in all Lichfield District Council car parks when using them for work.
Anyone who works for the NHS, is a health and social care provider or is volunteering for the NHS, will be able to access all the car parks Lichfield District Council manages for free during their working or volunteering day.
Formal ID will be issued to staff within the health and care sectors soon, but in the meantime the council will accept an official headed letter from employers.
The council will also be suspending any parking penalties issued to anyone within the health sector within recent days, if the penalty was in any way connected with work travel.
Councillor Iain Eadie, cabinet member for investment, economic growth and tourism, said: "We are offering all our city centre car parks for the use of NHS workers and volunteers, as well as health and care providers, in recognition of the vital and important work they are carrying out.
"On behalf of the whole council, I’d like to thank everyone in the health and care sectors who are working so tirelessly to help us in these unprecedented times.
"One way we can all help them is to follow government advice to stay at home, to social distance and to keep washing our hands regularly."
