A number of places have committed to dropping parking charges for NHS staff and other essential workers for the duration of the coronavirus pandemic.
NHS staff and volunteers are able to park in any surface car parking spaces, including the ‘airport’ car park at Stevenage’s Lister hospital.
They can also apply for a temporary MSCP permit to park in the multi-storey, or can use the overspill car park at Stevenage Garden Centre without a permit for parking between 7am and 7pm, Monday to Friday.

The barriers at the New QEII Hospital in Welwyn Garden City have been opened for all staff to park for free, as have the gates at Hertford County Hospital.
All temporary hospital car parking arrangements are set to be reviewed at the end of April.
North Hertfordshire District Council have also promised free parking to NHS staff and other key workers during the crisis, as Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council offered free parking in all council owned car parks.
