How can increased capacity at NHS car parks offer solutions, and not problems? Hospital car parking is a complex and multi-faceted issue. Approaches to modernise parking solutions must take into account the needs of the future, and develop appropriate and efficient ways to control throughput and overflow. Paul Eaton, Marketing and Business Development, at Berry Systems, looks at how parking solutions can adapt and adjust for the demands of future generations.

Independent surveys show that at peak visitor times, there are currently up to 72 visitors queuing to wait for a space at hospital sites.
