Patients and visitors to Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood should be guaranteed a parking space now that hospital staff have signed up to a ‘green travel plan’.
Staff members are seeking alternative routes to work by train, bus, or bicycle with a ‘cycle to work’ scheme. Those unable to use public transport or cycle are car-sharing with nearby friends and colleagues and parking off-site to leave more space for patients.
One patient said "I have been able to park with ease on all occasions. Thank you for solving the car park issue. This is even more reason to use the Spire Hartswood for any health problems in the future".
Parking at Spire Hartswood Hospital is free.
