Corbyn promises to scrap all NHS hospital parking fees
Jeremy Corbyn has promised to make parking at NHS hospitals free. He called the current charges "a tax on serious illnesses."
Health union Unison has also described nurses having to move cars between treating patients to avoid fines. Their wages have already fallen 12%. Parking can cost them £100 a month.
The Socialist says the parking pledge is great. It's one step towards an NHS that is really free for all at the point of use.
As the next step towards this, Corbyn should pledge to scrap all prescription charges.
