On 20 March, NSW Premier Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced a massive reduction in car parking fees for patients and their carers who have to regularly visit hospital. For example, it means someone visiting a hospital once a week for a year will save $1,600.
We’re on a roll, so why stop now?
Join our campaign to make hospital parking costs cheaper across the country!
Parking your car at children’s hospitals around the country in some cases can cost you $30 a day. This is often unaffordable for many parents, particularly those with kids who are receiving long-term treatment.
Currently, only hospitals in Victoria (and soon NSW) publicly advertise a discounted weekly pass ($60). All other hospitals charge by the day.
Many hospitals do offer some parking discounts for long-term patients, but these aren’t advertised and often parents are asked to prove they are in need. It shouldn’t be so hard.
We’re not asking for much - we just want to see families going through a rough time have one less thing to worry about.
Sign our petition to ease the cost burden on parents with sick kids.
