Transport management and car-parking - environment and sustainability

This health technical memorandum identifies best practice in developing travel plans and providing adequate transport and car parking for NHS trusts in England. It considers the background to the current concerns surrounding transport by studying the strategic and policy issues leading to the present situation in transport and car parking and by looking at the national context within the healthcare economy. A matrix to estimate a base level of car parking provision (in the form of an accompanying CD-ROM), links to other assessment tools, ways to encourage trusts including their personnel and the public, use of external funding opportunities and environmentally-friendly transport options are outlined. The best practice NHS trusts share a number of factors that produce a robust travel plan. These include: financial incentives or disincentives, car parking constraints, a range of alternative modes of transport, strong management support, progressive implementation, close partnerships with the local authority and public transport operators, and dedicated staff responsible for travel plans.
