CEO of the HSE, Paul Reid said, “I have been overwhelmed by the dedication, support and professionalism of all our staff in helping to contain the COVID-19 outbreak to date. As we face in to a very difficult period it is only right that we make every effort to ensure that staff are supported in their work. Therefore I have directed today that all hospitals and healthcare facilities suspend parking charges for staff for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis, as a small mark of our gratitude for their efforts.”
