Health Minister Robin Swann has instructed Trusts to put in place, with immediate effect, the provision of free car parking to HSC staff until 31 March 2021.
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 today’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.
