The HSU has long campaigned for accessible parking for all health workers, patients and visitors.
No one should have to pay to park at their place of work.
During the COVID lockdown, HSU members successfully lobbied the NSW Government to remove parking fees for health workers who were performing such a vital service. When parking fees returned, members vowed to continue the campaign.
Today, HSU members are celebrating a significant victory as the NSW Health Minister Ryan Park announced that free parking will be extended to regional health facilities including Tweed, Coffs Harbour, Lismore, Maitland, Belmont and Shoalhaven Hospitals.
