Personally,I wouldn’t mind paying.

My Dad was in hospital for 10 weeks, 3 weeks in Bristol 7 weeks in bath, So for just my Mum visiting in her car was £180 (£25 per week in Bristol, £15 per week in Bath), then add what me and my brother had to pay as we weren’t always able to travel together (Brother working, Mum staying all day, staggering visits etc), and the amounts get ridiculous (parking tickets are specific to the car registration at both hospitals).

Fortunately my local hospital in North Wales doesn’t charge for parking, which given the geographical area that it covers and the lack of public transport its a good thing and the right thing. Car parking charges at hospital are disproportionately unfair on people from rural/ non-urban areas.
