The news comes following confirmation that government funding for the scheme will continue.

This means normal parking charges are due to be reintroduced from Thursday, October 1.

According to East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, it “does not seek to make a profit from parking at any of our hospital sites”.

Any money made from car parks goes back into maintaining parking facilities.

Free parking will also be extended one of the trust’s other sites, Hertford County Hospital.

The trust added: “Car parks can become very full at some of our sites, and we ask those attending to be a good neighbour and park responsibly.”
