| Q-Park are delighted to have made a donation to the Mercy Hospital Foundation of €3,193. This means that the total amount donated from this charitable partnership now totals a huge €69,607 since 2013!
Following the decision to end free on-street parking for healthcare workers near hospitals in Dublin, Q-Park has partnered with Dublin City Council to provide low-cost parking spaces for those that need them most. Only available to frontline hospital staff, these spaces are located at Q-Parks The Spire and Dawson Street car parks and can be used for a maximum cost of €5 per day. This arrangement will initially run for six-months, with the scheme to be reviewed at the end of the period.
Lord Mayor Hazel Chi said 'The spaces will be made available at a very affordable cost, which is well below the current market rate for secure off-street car parking in the city centre. The Council is satisfied that there will still be plenty of spaces available in these car parks for motorists wishing to park in the city centre for shopping, leisure and business purposes.'
Adam Bidder, Managing Director of Q-Park Ireland commented ‘We are absolutely delighted to be able to offer discounted parking to frontline hospital staff in Dublin. These dedicated professionals provide vital services in these difficult times. We are pleased to be able to reward their efforts by offering a safe and clean environment for them to get to their place of work whilst minimising the risk of infection’.
This low-cost parking scheme follows Q-Parks decision to support the HSE and frontline hospital staff during the peak of the Covid-19 outbreak. Q-Park provided free staff parking to hospital staff at Beaumont Hospital and 50 free unlimited parking spaces to the Mercy Hospital from April - June. Free parking for Beaumont Hospital is still ongoing. See what Covid-19 measures Q-Park has put in place to ensure customers are safe when parking.
