Hammerson & parking platform offer free parking at 943 sites for NHS workers

Shopping complex giant, Hammerson has joined forces with YourParkingSpace.co.uk, the UK’s leading on-demand parking platform, along with property businesses, including Canary Wharf Group, to provide NHS workers with free parking across the UK.

By registering on YourParkingSpace, NHS workers are provided with a unique code which enables them to use their NHS credentials to reserve spaces in over 900 car parks nationwide.

There are 943 car parks available to book free of charge, including at shopping centres, hotels and supermarkets, with many located near health or medical facilities.

Kathryn Malloch, Head of Customer Experience at Hammerson, said, “We all know that NHS workers are really going the extra mile right now, for all of us, and we are hugely grateful for everything they are doing. Hopefully this initiative will help make their journeys to work a little easier and safer.”

Harrison Woods, CEO of YourParkingSpace.co.uk, said, “In these unprecedented times, it’s important that we do what we can to help.

“With reduced public transport in many places and increased movement of health workers, we’re pleased to be working alongside Hammerson, British Land and Canary Wharf Group to assist key workers in this small way.

“We plan to add new spaces to the platform every day – hopefully it’s something that helps to make things easier for NHS staff and other key services workers.”

Steve Greig, Co-Managing Director, Canary Wharf Management, said, “We all need to look out for each other during this challenging time. Through YourParkingSpace, we are delighted to be able to offer our parking spaces at Canary Wharf to the many brilliant NHS workers who are working hard day and night to support the country.”
