Speaking to Newry Times, Mr Swann said, “As our valued staff enter into a most challenging and pressurised time, I hope that this provides some welcome news.”



The move follows this week’s budgetary announcement of additional funding allocated to the Department of Health for free staff car parking until the end of March 2021.

This is the second period of free parking in response to Covid-19.



Free parking was put in place for HSC staff in the period 1 April to 30 June 2020.

For staff who pay through their salaries, an adjustment will be made for the free parking period.



Staff who pay at hospital car parking machines can get refunds for the free parking period.

    Is this just for hospital workers ? What about other NHS services that staff have to pay for expensive car parking ?
