Alex Easton MLA has expressed deep disappointment in the South Eastern Trust failure to introduce free unconditional car parking charges for all Health Staff.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“I was so excited to hear the Health Minister was to make an announcement on free car parking charged for Health Staff after lobbying by myself. I was however extremely disappointed as I read the fine print of a memo to staff that the South Eastern Trust appear to be putting time limits on free car parking for staff, all I can say is that this has caused deep anger with Health Staff at the SE Trust who feel let down and conned with these conditions.”

“The SE Trust has on this occasion has not valued all staff who are in this battle together to battle the Covid 19 pandemic, this has limited the scope of free car parking charges for staff and is a conn. This is just not right and the Health Minister needs to correct this wrong and ensure that all health Staff at the SE Trust are included for a 24 hour per day seven days a week free car parking at all SE Trust premises when attending work and that it includes all staff”
