Reserved: Free Parking for Healthcare Workers

With the public’s new appreciation for medical staff and other healthcare workers who are putting their own wellbeing on the line to keep everyone else safe, the folks at YourParkingSpace figured it was time to do more than say thank you. It joined forces with property companies to give NHS staff access to free parking at more than 900 lots across the UK—at shopping centers, hotels, supermarkets, casinos, and various other sites.

YourParkingSpace has kept the scheme very simple: NHS workers enter their staff email address on its website to receive a free parking code to use for bookings on the site or on the app (found on the Apple App Store or Google Play). That code is valid for as long as the arrangement is offered and can be used to book hourly, daily, or monthly parking. At checkout, the parking fee is automatically set to £0.00.
