    The hourly parking rate at Northampton General Hospital is one of the most expensive in the country, according to figures released this morning.

    It costs £3.20 an hour to park at NGH - putting it fourth behind the Royal Surrey in Guildford (£4) Hereford County (£3.50) and Bristol Royal Infirmary, at £3.40 an hour.

    Northampton General was one of 111 out of 120 NHS trusts across England to respond to a Freedom of Information request from the Press Association, which found that NHS hospitals made a record £174m in the last year from charging patients, visitors and staff for car parking.

    A Department of Health spokesman said: "Patients and families should not have to deal with the added stress of complex and unfair parking charges.

    "NHS organisations are locally responsible for the methods used to charge, and we want to see them coming up with flexible options that put patients and their families first."
