Property and Parking Join Forces to Offer Free Parking for NHS Workers at Over 900 Car Parks Nationwide

YourParkingSpace.co.uk, the UK’s leading on-demand parking platform, has joined forces with property businesses including Hammerson Plc and Canary Wharf Group to provide NHS workers with free parking across the UK.

By registering on YourParkingSpace, NHS workers are provided with a unique code which enables them to use their NHS credentials to reserve spaces in over 900 car parks nationwide.

There are 943 car parks available to book free of charge, including at shopping centres, hotels and supermarkets, with many located near health or medical facilities.

YourParkingSpace.co.uk is in ongoing discussions with its network of space owners and will continue to update its website and Twitter page with additional places to park. It intends to extend the scheme to other key services workers over the coming weeks.

Please visit www.yourparkingspace.co.uk/nhs-parking for more information on how to use the service and the location of car parks.

Harrison Woods, Chief Executive Officer of YourParkingSpace.co.uk, said: “In these unprecedented times, it’s important that we do what we can to help.

“With reduced public transport in many places and increased movement of health workers, we’re pleased to be working alongside organisations such as Hammerson and Canary Wharf Group to assist key workers in this small way.

“We plan to add new spaces to the platform every day – hopefully it’s something that helps to make things easier for NHS staff and other key services workers.”

Kathryn Malloch, Head of Customer Experience at Hammerson, said: “We all know that NHS workers are really going the extra mile right now, for all of us, and we are hugely grateful for everything they are doing. Hopefully this initiative will help make their journeys to work a little easier and safer.”

Steve Greig, Co-Managing Director, Canary Wharf Management, said: “Through YourParkingSpace, we are delighted to be able to offer free car parking spaces at Canary Wharf to the many brilliant NHS workers who are working hard day and night to support the country.”
