A CUH spokesman said: "From 1 April, some parking charges for visitors will increase in line with the national retail price index. There will be no change to the daily (one visit) or weekly charge and others will rise by 10-20 pence on average, including staff charges. We are scrapping the current overnight rate due to complaints from visitors and will replace it with a simpler hourly rate.
"Our car parks are self-funding and do not make a surplus and by charging people to park here it means we can provide high-quality, secure parking facilities without diverting a penny from clinical care.
"We encourage our staff, patients and visitors to use public transport where possible - this helps ease congestion and saves car parking spaces for those who must use a car."
