We, the undersigned, call upon Ann Radmore, CEO of Kingston Hospital, to reinstate free parking for blue badge holders at Kingston Hospital. At present, free parking will cease for blue badge holders on the 22nd January. We feel that these changes penalise the most vulnerable in our society, and urge the hospital to reverse this damaging decision for the disabled in Kingston.
Reinstate free parking for the disabled at Kingston Hospital

The Kingston Independent Residents Group (KIRG) have today launched a campaign to reinstate free parking at Kingston Hospital for blue badge holders, branding proposed changes by the NHS Trust a ‘disgrace’.
Councillor Mary Clark, the KIRG group leader, who sits on the Health Scrutiny Panel, stated:
“This is yet another example of the establishment picking on easy targets. Blue badge holders are the primary users of hospitals and it’s picking on the vulnerable because they are the ones that visit the most.
“These changes are a disgrace, and must be reversed. We will end up with gridlock on Galsworthy Road where blue badge holders will legally park on the double yellow lines, and a situation where those who desperately need to go into hospital may not for fear of cost.”
