NHS hospitals have made more than £120 million from car parking charges in the last year.
The figure amounts to the highest on record, up from £141 million in the previous year.
The information was released by 89 of 120 NHS trusts from across England, following a freedom of information request by the Press Association. It found that in the year 2015-16, NHS trusts netted £120,662,650 by charging patients, staff and visitors to leave their vehicles in car parks. In the year 2014-5, the total amount was £114,873,867.
More than half of trusts who responded to the FOI request are making more than £1 million in car park fees every year, with some also handing money to private firms.
