It's been controversial here too though. Some hospitals charge for parking and some patients pay for prescriptions.

I think that if you're a genuine patient or visitor you shouldn't pay for parking. This could be checked out by validating the parking ticket before you leave. Charges have been brought in up here for parking because so many people use it for commuting rather than visiting.

As to prescription charges, paying if you can afford it seems fair to me.

What do you expect when the country is run by the Scots and the welsh?
