Harris seeks to cap parking at hospitals to €10 a day

Minister for Health Simon Harris is considering to cap hospital parking fees at €10 a day.

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.

The abolition of car parking fees has been ruled out.

The Irish Patients Association have welcomed the idea and say it will help families.
