The HSE has directed hospitals and healthcare facilities to suspend parking charges for staff.
The suspension will come in to force immediately.
I have just directed hospitals and healthcare facilities to immediately suspend car parking charges for HSE staff for the duration of #COVID19. In this difficult time, it is only right that we should recognise their brave commitment and dedication. @HSELive

The suspension of staff charges will remain in place for the duration of the Covid-19 National Public Health Emergency.
Mr Reid says he's been overwhelmed by the dedication, support and professionalism of all workers in helping to contain the outbreak.
He added it's only right that every effort was made to ensure they are supported.
