Hospital car parking charges could be capped at ten euro a day.
The move is being considered by the Health Minister Simon Harris.
Under the plans, discounted multi-day passes would also have to be introduced for relatives, guardians and friends who frequently visit patients in long term care.
Car parking charges at some hospitals are far too high. I ordered a review of all charges this year. Have now received the report which I will publish shortly. Maximum daily capped charges & a range of other options for frequent visitors will help many patients & their families https://t.co/wAeVMsxsCI

The Sunday Independent reports the abolition of car parking fees has been ruled out though.
