§ Ms Stuart
It is not known how many workplace parking spaces are available at National Health Service healthcare premises.
As healthcare providers, the NHS is well aware of the need to reduce transport congestion and hence pollution, and are taking steps to address their transport requirements. Transport strategies will include reducing car parking spaces by encouraging the use of alternative modes of transport whenever possible or practicable.
