Wellington nurses warn staff may quit jobs over parking restriction

From Checkpoint, 5:18 pm on 1 December 2023

Nurses and other staff at Wellington Hospital warn plans by the council to restrict nearby parking could force some to quit their jobs.

Over half of those who responded to consultation on the plan oppose or strongly oppose it, with many of the concerns coming from healthcare workers.

The council says it's listened to public feedback and has modified its proposal, but it may not be enough for hospital staff.
