COVID-19: Supporting Our NHS, Free Parking For All Staff
The outbreak of coronavirus, known as COVID-19, was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on 11 March 2020. Whilst the British community is trying their best to cope with the rapidly evolving situation, our NHS staff are on working tirelessly on the front line of the virus outbreak. That kind of heroism is celebrated at YourParkingSpace.
In a bid to say thank you for all that they do, we are teaming up with our commercial partners to roll out free parking to NHS staff until we overcome this pandemic.
There are over 900 car parks across the UK already signed up to the initiative including shopping centres, hotels, and supermarkets, with many around key NHS facilities. Our team is in ongoing discussions to expand this free parking network and look forward to welcoming many more partners to this initiative over the coming weeks, bringing onboard thousands of additional locations to service our NHS heroes.
We are also looking to extend this initiative to other core front-line services who are working to keep our country moving during this stressful time.
I work for the NHS, how do I get free parking?
NHS email users will need to submit their email via our dedicated NHS page to register for a free parking code. Once the email is verified, a unique code will be sent to your NHS email.
I’ve got my code, now where can I park?
We have over 900 car parks listed on the YourParkingSpace platform labelled with an NHS badge and alternative blue price pin to easily identify which location is ‘FREE FOR NHS’. Bookings are not restricted to day or time and can be booked for any length of period (hourly, daily, monthly).
