With the Health Technical Memorandum 07-03: Environment and Sustainability on Transport Management & Car Parking, the ever increasing range of questions / data required for ERIC and PAM plus a National Air Quality campaign focused on reducing NHS Trust emissions and the inclusion of Active and Sustainable Transport within Car Parking Strategies – we all need support!

The aim of this national Network is to embrace the principles of HTM 07-03 but also to focus on the challenges faced in delivering integrated sustainable transport, car parks which operate efficiently. All whilst managing the demand to balance staff parking and ensure patients and visitors can access spaces knowing that parking, and wider access, has a true and real impact on patient care, the patients’ journey and experience and ultimately on patient care.

Have you developed mechanisms to routinely and systemically review the need for patients, staff and visitors to travel?  How do you manage your car parking and transport strategy against this changing background? How do you secure senior management buy-in and staff acceptance?  How do you show you’re making progress and putting patients first?

 What NPAG are doing

In 2015, with the support of the Department of Health, NPAG set up a new national group dedicated to Car Parking and Travel Planning. After eight successful years, the group is now well-established with members from across the country, including Northern Ireland. We have also made connections with key central bodies including NHS England, the Department for Health & Social Care, Sustainable Development Unit and the BPA.

In 2020 we re-launched the group as the NPAG NHS Car Parking & Sustainable Transport Network, to reflect the shift of emphasis of our Agendas.  For the 2023-24 round, the first of four meetings will take place on Tuesday 7th December 2023 via Microsoft Teams.
