Free parking is to be provided for NSW Health staff at public hospital car parks to help support them during the pandemic.
It's a temporary measure while the current restrictions are in place and will start in the next NSW Health pay cycle.
It comes after the Health Services Union called for free parking in and around major Sydney hospitals for essential workers struggling to get to their jobs.
NSW Health deputy secretary Phil Minns said relevant local councils would also be asked to waive parking fines around hospital and vaccination facilities for healthcare workers during the lockdown.
"We hope this action brings some peace of mind to all our health staff at this challenging time," Mr Minns said.
